Michael Phelps dropped by Kelloggs. Oh SNAP! Crackle Pop!

February 6th, 2009 // 90 Comments

Michael Phelps’ Bong-watergate has just cost him the sponsorship of cereal giant Kellogg’s. The company will not renew its contract with the Olympic gold medalist, according to People:

“We originally built the relationship with Michael, as well as the other Olympic athletes, to support our association with the U.S. Olympic team,” a company spokeswoman says in a statement. “Michael’s most recent behavior is not consistent with the image of Kellogg. His contract expires at the end of February and we have made a decision not to extend his contract.”

Damn, looks like Michael Phelps won’t be on a box of Wheaties anytime soon. Except Wheaties is made by General Mills who should seriously be looking to gain from Kellogg’s Quaker mentality. I’m not saying they should start putting purple bong marshmallows in Lucky Charms – unless they want to triple their third quarter profits. To be honest, I don’t really know how that would happen, but isn’t that the way stocks work? You just make shit up then buy a jet. I’ve seriously been in the wrong business.

    yep, it’s official. I am now part of a growing group of people who have decided to boycott Kelloggs for being fascist pigs. Yeah Phelps!

    Brilliant.

    Phelps proved that smoking pot improves athletic performance.
    People hate that!

  5. lola

    Doesn’t everyone smoke pot?

    “Michael’s most recent behavior is not consistent with the image of Kellogg.
    yea the image of kellogg, like that even matters to anyone who buys your SHITTY cereal. Seriously why are American companies so BITCH made?

    If it wasn’t for the fact that he had a DUI around the time of the last Olympics, when he was only 19, I wouldn’t judge him as harshly. But now, he seems like such a brain-dead asswipe.

    Phelps won 8 gold medals. If anybody deserves a puff, he does!

    I’m surprised this hasn’t turned into 250 posts of people fighting and pontificating and hurling expletives back and forth about whether drugs should be legalized. Well we’re only up to 55, so I’m sure it can still be achieved!

    Using our new random lotto number generator system, where one filters out the witty one liner posts from all the fighting and pontificating and the “firsts!” and “frists!” so far we have #6…..

    Pretty ridiculous. You know what is “consistent with the image of Kellogg”? Yogurt enemas. It’s true, look it up. So, in conclusion, the holy word of Kellogg: pot in your lungs = bad, yogurt in your asshole = good.

    Hey #33,
    Maybe he’ll have more time to concentrate on the Center For Children Who Can’t Read Good.

    I wanna smoke pot with Michael Phelps. Guy needs a haircut first.

    I just heard on the news that Phelps has signed a big contract to sponser “Grannies Homemade Hashish Brownies”….should be big for him…as he also gets to eat as much product as his fish body can digest!

    If you win 8 gold medals in a year
    when all the major competitors
    were out – bit fucking whoop.

    He is so arrogant!

    Yay for Kelloggs for not wasting
    their money on him anymore!

  14. #14 That’s true about Tony the Tiger, he’s even said in interviews that he was baked out of his mind the first time he decided to jack off into a box of Corn Flakes to invent his cereal

  15. It looks like they shaved a greyhound and made it model clothes for wal-mart

    I hope we all realize Kellogs was going to terminate the contract soon anyway. Because he’s a swimmer and it’s no longer an Olympic year. Thusly no one cares.

  17. I heard that Subway also removed all photos of Phelps from their site and are demanding their money be returned. (Hey, look at that. I actually posted something newsworthy instead of one of my usual snarky comments.)

  18. It sucks for him, but just like any other professional athlete, there are morality and legal clauses in your contracts and endorsements. Sure he may be a kid but so was Lebron and Carmelo and those guys stayed out of trouble and if they got into trouble, there was no photographic evidence. Pot is still very much illegal except in Massachusetss where you can carry it now. He can drink all the beer he wants but he cannot be caught with an illegal drug.

    He can’t control whether or not somebody takes a picture of him. Apparently he tried to pay the guy to delete it, but the guy wouldn’t – What’s he supposed to do?

  20. Dr.

    Good for him. He’s cocky as fuck and uglier to boot. He thinks he’s God’s gift but he isn’t shit when the pool isn’t around.

    One more MONGOLOID-looking idiot to make fun of. God bless America.

  21. 11pound

    Good. I was getting sick of looking at his retarded face. Maybe Tommy Chong can hire him as a spokeman for his online bong company.

  22. Mike Hawk

    Dude should pitch himself as the next TV live action Lou Ferrigno for the Hulk. Fuck the Haters, Screw the Games…Already killed that. Lets hang out, take a rip and talk television………..Call me.

  23. michelle

    this is so dumb. i think it’s no big deal that he smoked/pretended to smoke/didn’t inhale marijuana. but, nevertheless, hopefully this will teach him a lesson about letting people video tap him hitting the bong.

  24. dicklick

    UGLY NERD FUCKFACE IS WHAT HE IS, UGLYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NERD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DWEEB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHITHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Rude. The little stoners are the best consumers of those cereals.

  27. stu

    big mistake Kelloggs. now Phelps will sign w/ Captain Crunch, the preferred cereal of stoners

  28. puhleez

    I think it’s safe to assume that the only people who are mad at Phelps are probably red state republicans, and no one really pays attention to them anymore anyway.

  29. A trendsetter, folks.
    YELLOW TEETH ARE “HOT” THESE DAYS!!

  30. !

    He is a male butterface.

  31. /

    also, butterneck

  32. Gbunny

    I agree with 13.pretty much everyone has tried or is doin pot whooo.is so not that big of a deal..i still don’t like the guy though.freaking douche

  33. Matty Mech

    Heh, I was wondering when the true Phelps would come out.

    I live only an hour from UM and had friends that went there and met him at parties… this kid is an asshole who likes to get drunk and throw bottles at people and cars from house roofs.

  34. Roger

    It’s just Pot! GET OVER IT!!!!! *lights a joint*

  35. Watch

    I cant believe Aquaman got in trouble for hitting it up.

  36. Michael Phelps is an American Hero. He stood tall and made America proud at the Beijing Olympics. This is how America treats its heroes, we forget all of the hard work Michael Phelps did to achieve his task, we forget the pride we felt with the each gold medal, we forget how Phelps helped America to be competitive against a Chinese when they planned on winning all of the gold’s, we forget all of those things and hang a man for smoking a glass pipe at a college party. It is time that we as a country stand up for the rights of the individual, it’s time we stand together with our neighbors and take collective control of our destinies. Write a congressman or a senator any of them; imagine the weight of millions of emails calling for a change in policy. In this moment in America anything is possible just Google the email address of you’re representative and send him or her short email. It will take 10 minutes but then you have taken responsibility for change. A senator considers each email as representative of 2 thousand voters.

  38. ketielynn

    Just wanted to give props to whomever came up with the “Caption” Oh Snap…Crackle, Pop. Good one!

  39. Jethro

    Kuh-rist! did someone tell him that haircut looked good?

  40. I’m tired of the role model crap. Be a role model to your own kids and quit looking for someone else to do it for you. I respect Phelps for owning up to what he did. Millions of people his age, and older and younger, smoke weed. Is it illegal? Yes. Should it be? No. Hell…Amsterdam has less drug related crime and fewer STD’s. Legalize weed and prostitution and tax the hell out of it. It would help solve some of our financial problems. As Rodney Dangerfiled would say “hey everybody we’re gonna get laid” !!!!!!!!!!
