Sports Personality of the Year nominee Earps said she would “definitely like to think” Nike learned a lesson. After mounting pressure, the sports brand released her green long-sleeved Lionesses shirt, only for it to sell out in five minutes.
Asked on Sky News on Sunday if she thought Nike “learned a lesson”, she said: “Definitely. I would like to think so, I’ve been speaking to Nike quite a bit over the course of the year.
“On this topic, they know that they got this wrong and that’s why they’ve done this correction – a big company like Nike, they wouldn’t do that if they didn’t know it wasn’t right and that there was an injustice there.
“They did the right thing and, really, I can’t thank the public enough for their support and, really, we wouldn’t be in this position without it.
