Pharrell Williams Urged To Rename His ‘Holi’ Adidas Collection For ‘Trivializing’ Hindu Religion

A Hindu statesman is calling on Pharrell Williams and Adidas to rename their collaborative Holi-themed shoe collection, calling it culturally insensitive.

The collection is a “trivialization of traditions-concepts-symbols-beliefs of Hinduism.”

The Holi collection features 12 shoes inspired by the Hindu spring festival of colours, featuring a pastel colour palette and Hindu symbols.
