On Nike’s New Standard for Homophobic Advertising
In which The Gay Recluse throws out his running shoes and says wtf.
According to our Harlem correspondent Neskers, the below ad is plastered all over phone booths in his neighborhood:
We’d like to say fuck you, Nike, and all the advertising geniuses who created this piece of shit. Srsly, unbelievable. Nike should be forced to give no less than $1 billion to AIDS awareness, HIV prevention, and fighting homophobia, particularly in those neighborhoods (like Harlem) where it’s most needed.
[Update: The ads have been pulled by Nike. Chalk one up for The Gay Recluse.]
[Update: If you’re a d-bag who doesn’t think this is homophobic, please read the comments before leaving your own; chances are some other d-bag has you covered.]
