Nike Says New Slogans Are Not A Drug Reeference
Nike Inc. has put out a new line of t-shirts with slogans that are being criticized by people saying they endorse drug use.
The three slogans Nike is getting heat for are: ‘Get High’, ‘Dope’, and ‘Riding Pipe’. Nike defends the slogans by saying they are popular lingo for skateboarders, snowboarders, and other extreme sports participants – which is who Nike is marketing these to.
MSNBC reports, the Mayor of Boston asked Nike to remove a display of the shirts, and an anti-drug group from Oregon sent letters to 1,500 people asking them to contact Nike and let them know about their disapproval.
