Today on RBDR: Supporters and critics of Nike's new Colin Kaepernick "Just Do It" advertising campaign were extremely expressive on social media. Now comes word that the Russian Federation's Internet Research Agency became heavily involved as the campaign launched, mushrooming an initial 7,000 tweets to 80,000 later that same day.

Similar stories, including a study documenting alleged Russian influence in the online reception to Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi in December 2017, have also come to light.
