What's going on with Michael Jordan's new Hitler mustache? Doesn't he have personal advisors to keep him from making such ill-considered moves? Didn't anyone at Hanes or their ad agency balk at it? And why haven't the good, snarky folks at Deadspin addressed this yet?

As I look further into this, I realize this ad campaign first ran in May. Why hasn't Hanes pulled it? Does a retired basketball player with facial hair stolen from the fuhrer really help move men's underwear?
