Nike drops ads deemed homophobic

Nike's new ad campaign for its Hyperdunk shoes features a series of pictures of basketball players getting dunked on in what's considered the worst way possible.... the dunker dangling off the rim, his balls dangling in the face of the man being dunk-ee. They all have dynamic slogans like "That Ain't Right!"

Now they are being pulled for being homophobic....worrying about whether or not this ad is homophobic has to be the biggest sign yet, of the coming end of civilization as we know it...

Maybe Nike needs to make an ad about football players slapping each other's asses and reaching between each other's legs. As a card-carrying straight, I can categorically state that I wouldn't want someone's sweaty ass crack in my face during a basketball game.
