Nike has now unleashed a lawsuit against pro-Satan rapper Lil’ Nas after he bought hundreds of Nikes and then redesigned them to feature pentagrams and to contain a drop of human blood.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Nike filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against MSCHF, the shoe designer behind Lil Nas X’s now-infamous “Satan” sneakers Monday, alleging that the shoe design and marketing implied Nike is involved with the shoe.

The shoe maker cited a need to “set the record straight,” according to NBC News, after the shoes went viral on social media and some outraged individuals accused Nike of supporting the “Old Town Road” rapper’s embrace of the occult.

Lil Nas X, whose real name is Montero Lamont Hill, is not named in the lawsuit, only MSCHF, which collaborated with Hill on the Satan shoe design, technically a follow-up to the shoe designer’s previously released “Jesus” shoe.

Nike had no involvement in either design; MSCHF reportedly modified deadstock Nike Air Max 97s, but the company is reportedly concerned that there has been “significant confusion” about its involvement or approval of the Satan shoe.

The lawsuit expresses Nike’s belief that its image has been damaged due to controversy surrounding Lil Nas’s creation of the satanically themed shoes.

I’m not a Nikki fan after they took the American Flag shoe off the market because a football player refused stand for the American flag. But Im glad they are seeing that company. They should sue the rapper also because that company would’ve done it if Lil Nas X hadn’t asked them to design the shoe. I wouldn’t purchase nothing from Nike because how they let a nobody influence them.

Probably really going to make some people mad! Send your kneeling boy Colin to take care of it! Ironic, is it not?

My opinion is Nike is crying “wolf” as they have been the true Satan to many Chinese people who work virtually as “slaves” for the Government that’s in the bed of Hell with them for profit!

Nike is worried about their image? Really? They will probably lose that case. Their image is already trashed.
