Ryan Lochte Robbed of His Sponsors
After Ryan Lochte’s embarrassing admission that his Rio robbery scandal was fake, he has now not only lost his dignity, but his sponsors, too!
Just days ago, Lochte appeared on television to apologise for his false claims and said, “I should have been much more responsible in how I handled myself and for that am sorry to my teammates, my fans, my fellow competitors, my sponsors and the hosts of this great event.”
But it looks like it was too little too late for the Olympian, because all of his sponsors have now dropped him.
Speedo tweeted a statement explaining that the company, “cannot condone behaviour that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for.”
Unfortunately, his other sponsors soon followed suit and he is now no longer sponsored by Ralph Lauren, Gentle Hair Removal and Airweave.
Well Ryan, you’re probably best sticking to what you’re best at and, so Dory would say, just keep swimming, just keep swimming…
