After years of missteps, Under Armour may have gotten at least one thing right.
Somehow the brand managed to sign Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson back in 2016 to birth a sportswear line called Project Rock. The brand and Rock was set to release a new collaborative sneaker but postponed the launch in lieu of the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin.
In statement Under Armour had this to say: We support all of those in sport who are currently demanding societal change across the United States and the globe.”
The postponement joins the NBA who didn’t play any of their scheduled Wednesday playoff games; contests in Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer also followed suit. Tennis star Naomi Osaka pulled out her semi-final match in the Western and Souther Open.
