It doesn't have to be a shoe, it really goes for anything
Memes with Lil Nas X's Satan Shoes are going viral after Nike is taking the case to court
The Nike sports company has filed a lawsuit against the designers of the satanic sneakers collection promoted by singer Lil Nas X, who, although bearing the company's logo, do not have their approval. It's a huge scandal in the US.
The lawsuit, for trademark infringement, was filed in federal court on the same day that the artist and the art team released a limited series of sneakers, which contain a drop of human blood on the soles and where there are only 666 units available, at a price of $ 1,018 (865 euros).
All the shoes, which are a modified version of the Nike Air Max 97 model, were sold a few moments after they went on sale, causing a riot on social media. Opinions are divided, but many call for an end to these sales.
The company had to respond to criticism by making sure they were not involved in designing or selling the shoes.
"There is evidence that there is significant confusion in the market, including calls for a boycott of Nike in response to the launch of the MSCH Satanic shoes, which are based on the misconception that Nike has authorized or approved this product," the company said.
The video that accompanies the song got over 35 million views over the weekend, shows Lil Nas X seduced in what appears to be the Garden of Eden, after which he is condemned to hell, where he ends up seducing the devil.
The controversy is part of the artist's activism for the visibility of the LGTBQ collective in a world as masculine and sometimes homophobic as rap, the author explained.
After the scandal the internet exploded with memes, Bemorepanda collected some of them.
