Last fall, New Balance exec Matthew LeBretton expressed support for Donald Trump. Comedian Chelsea Handler evidently just found out about it, and she’s come up with a surefire way to stick it to the shoe company:

OK, so, first of all:
@chelseahandler but they already have your money…

@chelseahandler I get the sentiment, but buying NEW pairs would support him. The old pairs were bought/paid for BEFORE they supported him?

New Balance doesn’t care. They already have your money.
And… I’ll wager this causes a modest bump in sales. https://t.co/hBxv2oklgz

Joke's on you.
You already bought them.
BTW I bought three pairs last month–one each for me & two kids. https://t.co/7jLmyYvozz

And then there’s this:

Not just throwing away good shoes, but throwing away good shoes that could benefit people who could actually appreciate their value — regardless of the politics behind them:
Throwing away shoes when others have no shoes. Great work. https://t.co/IWNVR9K7xl

Not very compassionate, is it?

@chelseahandler donate them instead!

@chelseahandler maybe donate them to someone who needs shoes instead of burning them? I mean…come on…

@chelseahandler you could give them to the less fortunate. Some people don't have shoes.

Guess Chelsea’s not thinking about them. She’s far too busy patting herself on the back.
Perfectly good shoes, there's homeless & women in shelters that could use those. Pretty damn selfish to burn them. Figures, though https://t.co/RdDVjxDy44

Only your 3 favorites? You could donate them, you could do a lot of things, but instead you do internet stunts. https://t.co/wf2YSrx0n0
