Gay rapper Lil Nas X released his special brand of 666 "Satan Shoes" on Monday along with a music video of himself performing a lap dance on Satan, perverted actions that Rev. Franklin Graham called a "dangerous marketing endeavor" because "Hell is a real place, and so is the eternal torment of those who reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior."

The company MSCHF Product Studio Inc. made the shoes, 666 pairs. The shoes are based on the Nike Air Max 97 shoe and come with liquid in the soles, which reportedly contains the blood of someone from MSCHF. A satanic pentagram is attached to the laces and the Bible citation Luke 10:18 is imprinted on the shoe.

Luke 10:18 reads, "And He said to them, 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.'" In his video, Lil Nas X falls from an Eden-like garden into the bowels of Hell. 

On Monday, Nike filed a lawsuit against MSCHEF for alleged trademark infringement. 

"This is a dangerous marketing endeavor if you ask me," said Rev. Graham in a March 29 post on Facebook.  "Rapper Lil Nas X is producing 666 pairs of Nike shoes they’re calling 'Satan Shoes.' They even go so far as to put a drop of human blood in the soles."

"The shoes are part of promoting a new music video in which this rapper descends down a stripper pole and gives Satan a lap dance," wrote Graham. "The morals in this country have fallen so fast, and many times the entertainment industry is leading the way."

Graham continued, "The Word of God says, 'And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)."

"Hell is a real place, and so is the eternal torment of those who reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior," said Graham, the son of the late-Pastor Billy Graham. 

It was reported that the Satan Shoes sold out online in less than a few minutes. Each pair costs $1,018.
