The continuing controversy surrounding the Ray Fong character, on the Adidas x Huf x Barry McGee sneaker has finally come to an end. Adidas has decided to pull the remaining pairs of this shoe after countless complaints and calls for boycott from the Asian community. "Out of respect to those offended and to demonstrate our deep commitment to inclusiveness and diversity, we have chosen to pull the remaining shoes from the marketplace” read a statement issued by the company.

An apology was also issued for the offense that was caused by the art work. The limited edition sneaker that contained an Asian caricature that some considered to be racist was a part of Yellow Series in the Adicolor campaign.
