The launching of the petition was in response to Adidas revealing a new bikini line with the names of the Holy Trinity on the triangle tops and the bottom, and selling it on the website Prayying.com.
Outrage on social media ensued when Addison Rae, a 21-year-old TikTok and Instagram influencer, posted herself with the swimsuit. While some called it a “slay,” others slammed it as “blasphemous” and “disrespectful.”
“Nah this disrespectful to Jesus. Sad what y’all do for money,” one commentator said, according to Fox News.
As reported by the International Business Times, other internet commentators suggested that the backlash should also be directed toward Adidas. One person said that “[People] should be mad at Adidas,” and a second asked if Adidas should “also be receiving backlash?”
One Twitter user also noted the double standard tactics of companies such as Adidas.
“Why do you gotta disrespect Christianity like that?” said @DannyBee8801. “You don’t disrespect any other religion, just Christianity?” he continued
“And why do you have to create it, @adidas? Not that I was ever a fan of Adidas (or Addison Rae for that matter), but I’ll never buy anything from Adidas.”
Besides Rae, pop singer Christina Aguilera also posed in a French version of the blasphemous swimsuit, according to Fox News.
Massive global corporations have belittled and insulted Christianity for greed and public approval for decades — but Adidas has taken “woke” corporate attacks too far with a brand-new bikini line that sexualizes God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Even worse, Adidas has sexually exploited a young 21-year-old social media star in order to push its blasphemous new bikini line. In a fortunate development, the young girl realized what she had done after an influx of internet outcry, and immediately deleted the post.
But Adidas has remained unwavering in its sex-obsessed campaign to sell blasphemous bikinis while insulting Christinaity by keeping the bikini online — WHICH IS WHY WE NEED YOU TO BOYCOTT ADIDAS PRODUCTS IF THEY DO NOT PULL THEIR BLASPHEMOUS CAMPAIGN IMMEDIATELY!
***JOIN THE NATIONAL OUTRCY AGAINST ADIDAS AND DEMAND THAT THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS REMOVE THE BLASPHEMOUS BIKINI TODAY! ***
Adidas has made a mockery of Christianity, thinking that the Christian faith can be insulted, twisted, and sold for the changing fashions of this world.
We need YOU to condemn Adidas’ new campaign. Defend Christianity against the sexualization of what should be holy and sacred.
Without your voice, our culture will continue plunging into darkness with outrageous disrespect in cases exactly like Adidas. “Woke” corporations will continue insulting your deeply held beliefs — continuing to attack the very same beliefs which you have instilled into your children and family.
Do not let them make a mockery of your deeply held Christian values! Speak out now and demand better from Adidas!
SEND A MESSAGE TODAY: We can win the fight for Christianity by joining forces from coast-to-coast and sending powerful messages like this one to massive corporations. They need our approval to sell their products — and we will not approve of blasphemy!
P.S. — Nike sparked national outcry with blasphemous shoes just a few months ago, demonstrating that the attack on Christianity will only continue unless we begin speaking up! Now is the chance to push back against an anti-Christian culture, so send a powerful message and demand better from Adidas!
LifeSite previously reported on products of companies featuring blasphemous content. In March 2021, the shoemaking retailer MSCHF released sneakers with satanic content basing them on Nike’s “Air Max 97” design. While Nike distanced themselves from MSCHF claiming that they did not have any working relationship, there were calls for a boycott of Nike.
Netflix was another company that faced similar backlash, with 2 million people signing an online petition against a blasphemous Brazilian comedy film depicting Jesus as a homosexual.
Despite the public outrage on anti-Christian content in commerce, arts and entertainment, there has been little to no condemnation from the Catholic bishops, as Cardinal Raymond Burke pointed out in 2019.
“Art has become an expression of the meaningless of life without God; they hate Christ because he reveals this emptiness,” Cardinal Burke said.
“It’s scandalous that bishops and priests remain silent when God is attacked, it is a sign of the grave crisis in the Church,” he continued. “The faithful should make acts of reparation and make use of every lawful means to prevent these obscenities from proliferating.”
