ISIS bans Nike clothing because firm’s name sounds like word for sexual intercourse in Arabic

Fashion-conscious militants fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have been dealt a blow after their commanders banned them wearing products made by Nike.

The sports brand features prominently on a leaflet distributed in the terror group’s de facto capital Raqqa warning ISIS jihadis about items of clothing they are no longer allowed to wear.

The news comes shortly after one militant decried the popularity of Nike among ISIS fighters, comparing the brand’s name and famous ‘tick’ logo to wearing a Christian cross.

    In that case ISIS can go Nike themselves.
