Seen this? The saga of Minor Threat vs. Nike continues, as the shoe giant has released a statement apologizing to the Punk band, their label Dischord Records and their fans. The company's apology (which can be read here) says that their ad, a homage to the band's seminal debut album cover, has been removed. Nike Skateboarding also says that the tour's poster "was designed, executed and promoted by skateboarders, for skateboarders. All of Nike employees responsible for the creation of the tour flyer are fans of both Minor Threat and Dischord Records and have nothing but respect for both. Minor Threat's music and iconographic album cover have been an inspiration to countless skateboarders since the album came out in 1984. And for members of the Nike Skateboarding staff, this is no different. Because of the album's strong imagery and because our East Coast tour ends in Washington, DC, we felt that it was a perfect fit. This was a poor judgment call and should not have been executed without consulting Minor Threat and Dischord Records."
