In the midst of the Baltimore Riots, New Balance is putting out its own fire storm.
Recently what appeared to be screen shots from New Balance’s company website surfaced the internet using protesters to “promote” the company. Twitter users have retweeted the fake screen shots over 1,500 times and favorited the tweet more than 700 times.
New Balance took to social media to tell users that the advertisement was not generated by New Balance and asked that users do not retweet the post:
“This is clearly not a New Balance generated post – we ask that you please do not re-tweet.”
