On The Gay Recluse aka Merciless Killer of Giants
In which The Gay Recluse mercilessly slays giants.
The Oregonian’s report published on Saturday quoted a Nike spokesman, Bob Applegate, saying three separate poster and billboard ads would be taken down in Portland, Oregon “as expeditiously as possible.” The ads also appeared in New York City streets and subway tunnels, the paper said.
Ha ha — we at The Gay Recluse are mericiless giant killers! Seriously, we applaud Nike for doing the right thing. But check this out:
Wtf, Oregonian! Thanks for not giving credit where credit is due! And hats off to Reuters for the same! And we have no idea what the weird “sketball” typo is about. Srsly, is this what passes for reporting these days?
But whatevs, we’re happy that the ads are coming down, which means homophobia is forever banished from our country and we can all live happily ever after, the end.
