In an effort to draw attention to a signed deal with adidas and Saturday’s official launch of his specialty sneaker products, “Happy” singer Pharrell Williams touched his own shoes up with a political statement: “Hillary Clinton Go Visit Ferguson.”
Some are criticizing the singer for using the death of Michael Brown, a topic which he spoke to CNN about last month, to make money promoting his product.
The new shoes, seen in the pictures and tweets below, were also filmed in a recent live performance posted on instagram.
