Nike was recently criticized in China after raising concerns about forced labor practices
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., scolded Nike CEO John Donahoe on Monday after he called the sportswear apparel giant a "brand of China," following an incident it was involved in earlier this year over concerns about human rights abuses committed by the communist government.
During an earnings call last week, Donahoe explained that Nike had a positive long-term view of its operations in China, where it had been operating for close to four decades.
"We are the largest sport brand there, and we are a brand of China and for China," Donahoe said. "And the biggest asset we have in China is the consumer equity. Consumers feel a strong, deep connection to the NIKE, Jordan and Converse brands in China. And it’s real."
Donahoe's comment came shortly after the company was ridiculed for a comment it made raising concerns about forced labor practices in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).
