11 Responses to “London Olympic Games logo tagged as “racist””

    I’ve never liked the logo, but I never hated it enough to find hidden meanings within it. This is an incredible stretch for Iran to boycott the games based on something so subjective, let alone 4 years late.

    Let Iran boycott the next summer Olympic Games in London. Who really need a bunch of !@#$%^& at the games anyways.

    The Logo sucks and should have been thrown out before it saw the light of day, but then it just goes to show you limeys have no taste in art.

    > Brad it seems the Iranians are looking for problems here. I feel sorry for the athletes whose sacrifices of the past years will have been in vain.

    > Leanne I’m sorry! Again!

    > GV, that’s a mean-spirited and bigoted comment. In future, racist comments of this nature will be deleted. Take them to Yahoo! please.

    Take the bottom left figure as an I top left as an R top right as an A and the bottom right as an N and see if the Americans might boycott also. Personally, I like the logo, it shows initiative and no small amount of courage.

    Well spotted Murray. You can have so much fun reading things into this logo. It is not a straightforward design, which is why there are so many different takes on it. I quite like it too, although it has been in so much hot water. I prefer it to the naked stoners for Brazil 2016.

    Are you simulcast on Yahoo to?

    I’m with Murray! Spot on.
    GV, I think you meant, “too.”

    Also if you work counter-clockwise starting at the bottom left you could end up with IRON< which would be offensive to people who don't like heavy metals, or who are mineral-intolerant. Cheers Chris!

    “They were evidently ok with the image of Lisa Simpson giving a blowjob.”… I missed that one. Where is it?
