Alleged Kenner ban on Nike circulating on social media

A social media firestorm erupted Sunday morning as a memo appearing to be from Kenner mayor Ben Zahn surfaced prohibiting booster clubs at city recreational facilities from buying Nike products, our media partners at The Advocate report.

“Effective immediately all purchases made by any booster club operating at any Kenner Recreation Facility for wearing apparel, shoes, athletic equipment and/or any athletic product must be approved by the Director of Parks and Recreation, or his designee. Under no circumstances will any Nike product or any product with the Nike logo be purchased for use or delivery at any City of Kenner Recreation Facility,” an image of the memo read, according to the newspaper.

Zahn did not respond to requests from the Advocate for comment Sunday morning.
