In fact, of six scenarios, Reebok only found one time where it would be acceptable to say such a thing. Their graphic said if you just found “a forgotten action figure from your youth, unscathed after decades, in your parents’ basement” that would be an appropriate time to say “you’re in such great shape…beautiful.”
Reebok has gotten mixed responses on Twitter, with some users criticizing the athletic brand’s foray into politics and telling the company they’ve lost a customer. Other Twitter users felt compelled to support the company by going to them for their next sneaker purchase and replying that they are heroes.
You should stick with selling shoes and stay out of politics, just lost a customer.#MAGA

The President has yet to reply to Reebok on Twitter, but tweeted numerous times about his visit to France, including one photo of himself, his wife, Melania, Brigitte and President Macron.
“Great evening with President @EmmanuelMacron & Mrs. Macron,” he tweeted on Friday. “Went to Eiffel Tower for dinner. Relationship with France stronger than ever.”
