Or he'll be relieved of his position. You can't speak that way in 2018

Non Americans don't care about being tarred by the outrage machine.  This will roll off his back imo.

I've always liked Adidas' products. This is just another reason to be a fan.

It will be interesting to see the fallout from this, as they're way more popular in a lot more areas of the world.

The ironic thing is his exact words are "we like to unite society" and he will likely get castrated by the American media, who will say how divisive he's being.

Except everything divides nowadays. Both parties will take an opposing view on anything that gets popular.

Founders Adi Dassler, Fritz and the other brother (Rudolf?!) were all active members of the Nazi party in WWII.  It’s interesting how far the company has come socially that they are now championing unity and denouncing divisiveness. I’m not being sarcastic either. 

One of the brothers left to form Puma.

Agreed.

That said both Adi and Rudolf risked quite a bit by having Jesse Owens as their marquee athlete during the 36 berlin Olympics.

Also Rudolf formed Puma.
