“Me after the nike lawsuit,” he captioned a Gif of a singed Squidward from SpongeBob SquarePants, though the musician is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

Nas was touting the Nike Air Max 97 shoes which feature the pentagram symbol, a verse about Satan from the Bible, and allegedly a drop of blood from a MSCHF staffer.

There are 666 pairs available and they cost $1,000 – but Nike is now suing for trademark infringement.

According to court documents cited by TMZ, Nike has accused MSCHF of tricking consumers into thinking they approved the devilish sneakers.

Nike stated that it “is in no way connected with this project” and accused Nas’ collaborator company of buying the shoes from them, modifying them, and upping the price.
