Nike Pulls New “Homophobic” Ads

In general, Nike advertisements are praised by those who see them for being inspirational and entertaining. This is not the case with the new Hyperdunk ads, which shows a basketball player dunking over another, and gets…well…a crotch to the face. Many are calling the new ads homophobic in nature.

Nike has pulled the ads.

See the CNN article here.
