Nike has launched a new program geared toward equality for everyone through sport. The sporting apparel company has teamed up with athletes and celebrities to give the initiative some visibility. One of the partners for the program is none other than Olympic gymnast and human emoji Laurie Hernandez.

Nike has launched their Equality campaign with the help of some very well known athletes including Laurie Hernandez.

The campaign is about equality for several groups of people including African-Americans, the LGBTQ community, and Native American and Aboriginal people in North America.

“Sport unites us and empowers us to be better, no matter how you look, what youbelieve or what language you speak. #EQUALITY,” reads the Nike website.

In a video posted to Vimeo, Hernandez gives a quick definition of what equality means to her.

“Everyone, no matter their race, their color, or their religion, everyone gets treated the same way whether it’s in sports or in life,” Hernandez says in the video.

Watch As Becky G Turns Her Sex Appeal Way Up With Casper Smart In ‘Mayores’

“A mí me gustan mayores.”

Becky G’s newest music video is here and it is hot, hot, hot. The Inglewood-raised pop star sings about loving older men that treat her like a queen and send her flowers because, why not? Becky G teamed up with Bad Bunny to gift fans another summer jam to add to the ever growing Latino-summer playlist of songs that just get your body moving, like J.Lo’s “Ni Tú Ni Yo”.

In the video, you see a scantily-clad Becky G working at a bar when she catches the eye of an older gentleman who looks like he is just rolling in cash. The older gentleman, by the way, is played by J.Lo’s ex-boo, Casper Smart. It’s clear that Becky G’s character and Bad Bunny’s bartender character have a plan for the older gentleman scoping out Becky G. It isn’t long until Becky G is in the car with Smart and they head back to his very lavish mansion in the Hollywood Hills. What happens when they get back to his place is something out of a scammer movie, with Becky G literally tying Smart to a bed and taking him for what he’s worth.
