Addidas has recently released a new pair of sneakers that feature a stereotypical caricature with slanted eyes, buck teeth and bowl cut with "Fong" written on it's heel. It is part of their "Yellow" series.
Too bad I'm desensitized to all this racist shit, otherwise I would sue Addidas for intentional infliction of emotion distress. But instead, I'll just sue them under the Right of Publicity doctrine for appropriating my brother's likeness and identity for profit.
But if you don't practice law, I recommend emailing or calling Addidas at their customer service number 1-800-448-1796. That's right, bitch them out... oh, and by the way, do me a favor and ask if they would personalize the shoe with "Yee" instead of "Fong"...
