4. Nike gets called out for a sneaker pack celebrating the LGBTQ community
In the past week, Nike has been dropping sneakers from its Be True pack in support of LGBTQ. Thing is, these shoes feature the pink triangle: a motif Nazis used to mark gay people with back in the day but, has since been reclaimed by the community. More recently, this symbol has been used by, and is associated with, the Aids Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP). In reference to Nike's use of the triangle on their sneakers, ACT UP tweeted the brand to suggest a donation from its profits to actually support the cause. Burn.
