“What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side…”
“We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style.”
Sponsor drops Rashard Mendenhall over bin Laden tweets
Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall is being dropped as an endorser by corporate sponsor Champion over his controversial tweets objecting to the celebration over the death of Osama bin Laden at the hands of U.S. commandos Sunday.
Champion is “ending our business relationship” with Mendenhall since the athletic brand doesn’t think he “can appropriately represent Champion,” spokesman Matt Hall said Thursday night.
The 23-year old Mendenhall also questioned what really happened to the Twin Towers during the September 11th attacks. Before deleting it from his Twitter feed, he wrote he has “a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style.”
