Nope. You’re wrong here.
Tiger was bigger than the game of golf for a long time and yes he got away with a lot, but even with that, when he got into trouble, Buick dropped his bag deal with him (he signed with Monster Energy). I’m not sure if he lost any other deals.
It’s happened before, that also. Fuzzy Zoehler lost all his deals for the fried chicken remark Tiger wouldnt forgive him and hung him out to dry.
I’m sure there are a ton of other guys who’ve lost deals for doing or saying the wrong thing.
This isn’t a cancel culture thing, sorry. JT let a word slip out of his mouth that his sponsor found offensive. Rather than deal with the aggravation, they dropped him. That’s their prerogative.
No actually to his point he is not wrong. He mentioned his swearing..using that one particular word..which is a point I brought up as well. He lost Buick over the cheating scandal. Every time he swore he was fined ten bucks and asked not to do it again.

I just saw that Citibank is keeping JT as a sponsor.

I didn't even know Citibank was a JT sponsor.

That makes two of us! Sometimes I just don’t understand advertising ROI. And as someone on the approving end of some sponsorships, that can certainly frustrate our operations team 😆

Good for Citi. Create something positive out of it that helps lots of people.

Also helps JT avoid being dropped by everyone, as usually the first 'keep' is the hardest sell.

That's a nicely crafted piece of PR. Here's how I imagine that conversation likely went down IRL:

CITI: Dude, we love you but some people on the Twitters are having a meltdown and PR says we have to fix it if we want to keep you on.
JT: So fix it then.
CITI: OK, what we're thinking is we have the PR department spin up some sensitive sounding verbiage about how we were shocked (!!) and how we're donating "a meaningful portion" of your sponsorship fee to LGBTQ stuff. Then if you're asked you just have to go on about how sorry you are and how you'll be better, etc etc. You know, standard drill.
JT: Wait, did you just say you were going to take money out of my fee?
CITI: Bro, don't worry, we got you.
JT: Whatever. Can I have my check now?

I'm surprised Don Lemon hasn't demanded JT become an "ally" like he demanded from Kevin Hart. :ROFLMAO:

Obviously his swearing didn’t upset his sponsors enough to drop him.
Again, Tiger was bigger than the game at that point but if he was sponsored by a church group and dropped a GD, yeah they would’ve dropped him.

This thread is getting really ugly.
I don’t come here for politics, and I don’t care about how big a racist some of you are. Keep it to yourself.
This was supposed to be about JT and what happened vis a vis Ralph Lauren and any other sponsors after what he said.
I can see the Tiger comparison up to a point, but now we’re into Don Lemon and Kevin Hart, and that’s wrong. This kind of crap doesn’t belong here.

How this place is letting you get away with this is unbelievable.

We have said numerous times to keep politics and this kind of stuff out of this thread.

It seems the same few people do it in every thread and if they will not stop, we will be forced to send them away.

Either keep it on the topic at hand or move along to another thread.

So Lebum takes a shot at a women and her race and its no big deal.....why not?

LeBron is an illiterate, low IQ fool who for some reason has been lifted up to god-like status in this rotting nation. The guys is as low class as it gets. 💩


But...we all know why he gets a pass.
