If you follow TSM, you know we are all about philanthropy and social justice. How horribly sad that the homophobic Blake Mycoskie is in bed with Focus on the Family.
Mycoskie’s company TOMS, donates a pair of shoes for every pair of shoes purchased. I could so easily support this and get behind this type of philanthropy, save that Mycoskie and his company TOMS supports one of the quintessential hate groups, Focus on the Family, which was named as a Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am now calling for a full Boycott of TOMS Shoes! Mr. Mycoskie, if you would like to chime in here, please do. I’m curious how you will justify funding and partnering with a well recognized Hate Group. Click here to see the full article.
Update: 2:43 pm PST July 9, 2011: Here is the “Apology” issues by Mycoskie. Sorry! I just don’t believe you! Really? You had no idea about Focus on the Family? You are a liar and a whore. Does this mean you will discontinue the partnership with them to sell shoes in Africa?
