In NYC on Wednesday evening Selena Gomez was in the front row at the first-ever fashion show for NEO by Adidas, for whom she serves as brand ambassador. In the middle of the event, n uninvited young woman in a T-shirt and hoodie handed Selena and other guests a flyer, with a companion nearby also distributing the material.
Claiming that Adidas is involved in ‘sweatshop’ labor practices overseas, the flyer read: ‘Selena Gomez: Be an ambassador for children, not for sweatshops.’ Selena was shocked by the protester, who was quickly escorted off the premises by security.
Selena said: ‘Thank you so much for coming out. I’m so excited to be a part of this and so excited to see what you guys did with it, you did an amazing job!’ Hopefully it is NOT true because it would be sad to take money from a company that uses sweatshops.
