Lest we forget, this is coming from the same man who in the past has used buzz about protests in Cairo and gun control laws as Twitter fodder to promote his footwear. It’s unclear at this point if Cole is just doing this for shock value and buzz, as one Twitter commenter noted, or if Cole really is this clueless. It’s also hard to tell which would be worse.
