New Balance Issues Statement Distancing Itself From White Supremacy

 

A well-known white supremacist and neo-Nazi, Andrew Anglin, went on a tirade after New Balance rejected his racially fueled endorsement. As you may or may not know, for the past few days New Balance has been suffering a massive backlash due to their company’s VP of affairs public support of the current president-elect, Donald Trump.

According to RawStory, Anglin, founder of the neo-Nazi and white supremacist website Daily Stormer, noticed that “butthurt cucks are burning their shoes, lol,” and tried to give the brand a helping hand and posted that it was “time to get on-board with New Balance” in an effort to make New Balance the official brand of racists and xenophobes everywhere.

Well, New Balance wasn’t exactly feeling that and released a statement to distance themselves from any such endorsements from white supremacists—stating that “New Balance does not tolerate bigotry or hate in any form” amongst other things.

The company suggests that the VP’s support of Trump is solely due to Trump’s stance against the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Well, Andrew Anglin wasn’t buying what New Balance was selling and dismissed the statement as “obviously fake” before going into a rant suggesting that “all Jews should be gassed ‘for real this time around.”

It should be noted that neo-Nazi’s consider the holocaust to be a made up story. Just ask Mel Gibson about that.

That said, if y’all want New Balance y’all can have it. As a matter of fact, you can claim Uggs, L.A. Gear and British Knights while you’re at it too. We don’t mind.

Just leave Nikes, Adidas, Reeboks, Timberlands, and Clarks to the culture.
