Raper Lil Nas X sparked backlash this weekend over his new so-called “Satan shoes.” The musician designed a pair of Nike sneakers that apparently include a drop of human blood mixed with ink, of which only 666 pairs are available for purchase, staying inline with the satanic theme.
Nike said Sunday, however, that the company has nothing to do with the release or the design of the shoes. The company stopped short of denouncing the Satan-themed kicks, though.
In a Snopes “fact-check,” the left-wing website confirmed that the shoes are indeed Nike Air Max 97s, adding, “Although the shoes are Nikes, a Nike spokesperson told us the company has nothing to do with the creation or sale of the ‘Satan shoes.’”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
