Young Thug

Adidas reached out to the gay and bisexual rappers, athletes and artists for their new Originals ad campaign.

As part of its inclusion and diversity efforts, Adidas featured bisexual rapper Young Thug and openly gay rapper Angel Haze in its Adidas Originals campaign.

Members of the hip hop community reacted with anger at what they believe to be satanic imagery in Young Thug’s campaign. At least 2 Adidas reps vowed to quit rather than help promote the campaign.

Angel Haze

Angel Haze, 26, is best known for briefly dating model Ireland Baldwin, daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, in 2015. Angel isn’t known for her music, but that isn’t why Adidas chose her for the Originals campaign.

    I’m confused too. Maybe because I don’t research the Illuminati on youtbue, but that is a drawing of the vertruvian man behind young thug. That is not satanic imagery. Now this is where I not quite sure what it means: The plastic surrounding his body with red lines. I think that’s the satanic part they’re alluding to but I’m going to need some help with this one — what ties it to the dark world?

  • Solo

    The drawing, which is in pen and ink on paper, depicts a man in two
    superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a
    circle and square. The drawing and text are sometimes called the Canon of Proportions or, less often, Proportions of Man.

    The drawing is based on the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius in Book III of his treatise De architectura. Vitruvius described the human figure as being the principal source of proportion among the classical orders
    of architecture. Vitruvius determined that the ideal body should be
    eight heads high. Leonardo’s drawing is traditionally named in honor of
    the architect.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No, it’s more than weird to me. The star in a circle is a well known satanic symbol. Him being in the circle with the 5 points like a star (his head, 2 hands, 2 feet) is what definitely resembles that symbol. The resemblance is just too close. I don’t think it’s coincidence at all.

    Now conservatives claim that blacks like to play the victims but it’s ok for conservatives to claim that blacks are the victims of the gay mafia.

    I enjoy it when conservatives tell us who our enemies are because we blacks are supposedly too stupid to figure it out on our own.

    Sodom and Gomorrah literally took place in the book of Genesis it’s destruction was not a prophecy. God informed Abraham that He would destroy those cities because of their great badness.Abraham pleaded with God if he could find at least 50, then 40, all the way down to 10 righteous persons in those cities that God would not destroy them, God agreed! God dI’d not find even 10 righteous men, those cities were dedtroyed. Abraham’s Nephew Lot and his family who were foreigners escaped by means of God’s angels. This destruction has most definitely occurred already, it is written, however it’s very easy to compare the times of today to the wickedness of those cities.

    2 Timothy 3

    Perilous Times and Perilous Men
    3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    Some insecure Caucasians suffering from inferiority complex always looking for a way to have AA succumbs. Some ignorant AA foolishly allowed their minds to be succumbed and calls it “getting with the program”. No, it’s called mockery and self-enslavement.

    Welcome to new age of slavery.

  • NeverSurprised

    Why the outrage now? Jay Z has been using satanic imagery for years and people just LUUUVE that little disciple of satan. He is evil personified and has never tried to hide it, but the mindless black masses don’t seem to have a problem with him.

  • NeverSurprised

    This bears repeating:

    “… in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, … without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, … lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. …And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women…”
    ————————-‘
    LOVERS OF THEMSELVES — That is every person who spends hour after hour, day after day, staring in the mirror and taking pictures of THEMSELVES, neglecting everything to focus on the almighty SELFIE.

    All of the rest — lovers of money, boastful, without self control, brutal — that is EVERY young black thug, or gangsta, or wannabe rapper, young men who have sold their souls for the almighty dollar. Killing each other, killing black CHILDREN and then boasting about their crimes.They have no souls.

    And please don’t come with the “white people are doing it too.” I don’t care about white people. I care about the destruction that black men are bringing to our OWN race in these, the final days.

    Gullible young women, PLEASE keep these men out of your homes and away from your children.

    Black males who keep allowing themselves to be disrespected; used, abused, emasculated & incarcerated (or will do just about anything unHoly) for a quick gig to make a buck or two deserve no sympathy when they finally open their Eyes & see the truth.

    -no wonder other ethnicities continue to frown upon or look down on the stereotypical urban black. Sad to see how easy it is to trick & manipulate Black males. Such confusion & dysfunction among Black males did not exist on this large scale when growing up. Now its all about anything to catch an STD via falling for any fad or street hype.

Back in the day you had to do more than these jokers today to become relevant. Why,Why why do we just fall for anything these days. Who sings “I took my roof off at the red light” & DJ Khalid with his yelling. Anybody can be a star and the white folks think making them spokesmen of their brand will equal profits because they know how black folks will spend money just to post on Instagram and make folks stroke their ego. I’m sorry for this long comment. But a nation of sheep following these folks are going nowhere. I’m done with Adidas and any other company promoting these jerks. Remember Can’t Get Right from Life?

    it’s appropriate….

  • Rhyme and Reason

    While the ads are very disturbing on many levels, it is a mirror image of how I suspect many people feel inside, and this is what marketers are going for and what they are selling to relieve!

    Individual or group-thinking; “lack of,” not feeling good enough, distorted negative, self-views, regardless of socio-economic factors is what they (product companies, advertisers, celebrity endorsements) feed and perpetuate.

    But, of course, these images hurt Blacks most because of our inability to self-identity! We still wait on approval and acceptance within society, our families, friends and other networks (the cycle of misinformation or mis-education is massive)! But, we are better off than a lot of people because of unrealistic definitions of beauty and the good life.

    We have always been forced to create our own creed, mores (church as our cornerstone, soul food, barber shop meetup, community, business opportunities, etc.), and concepts of beauty! We’re WINNERS, hunny, turn-off the news (noise and distractions)!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I read every word because of its substance! It is sad how we fall for it, time and time again! The bar is real low!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    They use the to media to keep convincing new generations that we ain’t chit, but they know we’re trendsetters, artistic and scientific, high jumpers and marathon winners, opera singers and R&B Popstars, PTA moms, President of the Block Club, and rachett hood chicks and villains, as well as Ivy League graduates!

    Unlike other groups (Asians, Immigrants, Hispanics or Latinos), who also fight and toil with very narrow standardized conceptions of worthiness, beauty, wealth, etc., enough of us don’t know our history or appreciate it, and are still waiting for racism to somehow abruptly end! It’s a conflict of interest to do so!
