In another episode of “Everybody Is Offended” a petition is circulating for athletic apparel giant Nike to pull it’s new Nike Air Max 270 shoes off of shelves because thin-skinned Muslims are claiming that the logo is offensive to Allah.
Following the release of the latest in their line of overpriced shoes, thin-skinned nitwits posted their silly petition on Change.org which has continued to gather signatures from aggrieved rug crawlers and their liberal/socialist SJW allies.

Via The New York Post, “Nike Air Max shoe logo sparks outrage for Allah-like design”:
Since the Air Max 270 dropped is February 2018, the cushiony sneaker has been a hit for Nike. But internet watchdogs are calling its logo “blasphemous and offensive” to Muslims.
A new Change.org petition has popped up, urging the sneaker giant to recall these popular kicks. The issue? The logo, scrawled across the sole, resembles the Arabic word for “Allah,” or god.
The logo’s placement means it “will surely be trampled, kicked and become soiled with mud or even filth,” writes Saiqa Noreen, who started the online action.
According to the actual petition:
Nike needs to recall offensive shoe with Allah’s name from worldwide market
Nike has produced the Nike Air Max 270 shoe with the script logo on the sole resembling the word Allah in Arabic, which will surely be trampled, kicked and become soiled with mud or even filth.
It is outrageous and appalling of Nike to allow the name of God on a shoe. This is disrespectful and extremely offensive to Muslims and insulting to Islam. Islam teaches compassion, kindness and fairness towards all.
After recalling trainers in 1997, which had a similar logo depicting the word Allah, Nike claimed to have tighten scrutiny on logo design. So why has a similar design been approved?
We urge Nike to recall this blasphemous and offensive shoe and all products with the design logo resembling the word Allah from worldwide sales immediately.
We also request stricter scrutiny of products before they enter the market.
I urge all Muslims and everyone who respects the freedom of religion or belief to sign this petition.
Thank you for your support and kindly share.
Good God people, get a life!
