The images, pictured above, purported to be from New Balance's website. Of course, no sneaker company would ever willingly connect themselves to this sort of chaosand New Balance has taken to Twitter to clarify that the images did not originate from the brand.

@KyMalibu We did not. It was not a New Balance generated ad.

Rapper Joe Budden caught wind of the images and fell for the joke, issuing the tweet below that's since been deleted. New Balance responded to Budden by explaining that the images were faked.

.@JoeBudden This is clearly not a New Balance generated post – we ask that you please do not re-tweet.

In a comment, New Balance explained that the images are part of an unfortunate hoax. “These were clearly not New Balance-generated posts and we are working with Twitter to address the matter," said the brand via writtenstatement. " We have asked that these posts not be retweeted.”
