I'm not saying she a gold digger, but she ain't messing with no broke…medals!
After Team USA's female athletes took home two-thirds of the squad's gold medals at the Olympics, Nike wanted to honor the women with a t-shirt that reads 'Gold Digging' in big shiny gold letters.
In case there was any confusion, Nike wrote in the product description:
"We aren’t saying they’re gold diggers – we’re just saying they’re out for the gold! What’s wrong with that?"
They may not say it, but it sure does imply it!
It also doesn't help that the shirt is NOT available in men's sizes, which makes Nike's intentions that much more obvious.
So far, Nike has yet to release a statement about the shirts, but if they know what's good for them they'll "Just Do It".
