Justin Thomas loses Ralph Lauren as sponsor after anti-gay slur

 

 

World No. 3 Justin Thomas, after his use of an anti-gay slur during last week’s Tournament of Champions, lost Ralph Lauren as one of his sponsors on Friday. 

“We are disheartened by Mr. Thomas’s recent language, which is entirely inconsistent with our values,” the company said in a statement. “While we acknowledge that he has apologized and recognizes the severity of his words, he is a paid ambassador of our brand and his actions conflict with the inclusive culture that we strive to uphold.

Why is that an Americanism?     

 

Any other gay experts on board?

sorry,  i'm really just too fagged out to comment at this moment.    and I'm pretty peed off that my partner forgot to clean my putter !

I had to look up  why him saying meatball was a problem ...I read it meant idiot.  Good job Thais prefer fishballs or there could be some upsets when they order 🙂

On 9 January, after missing a 5-foot par putt during a tournament at the championships, Thomas uttered: “fa***t”, a highly offensive term used to describe gay men.   The homophobic comment was heard via television microphones which Thomas was unaware of.

 

He has since issued an apology, referring to the comment as “inexcusable”.

No mention of meatballs.

It's a language thing.

Apparently for calling himself a "meatball" after missing a put!

Maybe Ralph Lauren sells a lot to meatballs.

A staple in the UK. My mother once made them for the Duke of Edinburgh. He asked for seconds. Delicious.
