Kellogg to Phelps

Bong Hits Aren't Grrrrreat!

2/5/2009 9:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael PhelpsApparently the taste of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes are not supposed to bring out the pothead in you -- because the company is officially kicking Michael Phelps to the curb.

After the bong shots surfaced, Kellogg was none too happy with their spokes-dolphin, and have just released the following statement: "We originally built the relationship with Michael, as well as the other Olympic athletes, to support our association with the U.S. Olympic team. 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."

Interesting move ... considering Frosted Flakes are great for the munchies.

Give the guy a break. He spent 12 years 8 to 10 hours a day in the pool to give America what they got. He was without a life for many years and now that he wanted 6 months off to enjoy himself, he's getting kicked to the curb. If he doesn't enter the World Championships or the 2012 Olympics, it's not his fault, it's everyone's fault that didn't give him a chance to live a little. Your the best Michael and you deserve all that glory and money.

Wow    

As a mom, I totally approve. I know it seems harsh, but your screwups do have consequences. It's better he learns this while he's young.

get off his back!!!
when he was given these endorsements they claim they knew who they were endorsing, did they know that he had a dui at the age of 17? that's a bigger deal then this, but they didn't care because the public wasn't talking about it. i don't smoke pot, but for whoever's sake!!! would this be a big deal if he did it in portland? they are harassing the hell out of this guy. what about that old saying... "He Without Sin, Cast The First Stone." kellogs, shut up! i will laugh when some irs mess or something else comes falling down on your head. frosted flakes are more like g-r-r-r-r-r-r-ross than great anyway.

If stars and athletes haven't learned by now that it's highly likely that SOMEONE in the room will be recording their actions with their cell phones, then they deserve to be made examples of. I do not condone what he did, but if he's to continue doing it, Michael please go into a private closet ALONE.

When are people going to wake up? Folks who smoke weed now and then are no worse than anyone else! The guy won 8 gold medals and yet the press and alot of drinkers start pointing fingers. Smoking pot is pretty much harmless when done in moderation.And as for those who say its a stepping stone drug , their wrong. My grandpa use to give me drinks off his beers long before I ever smoked weed. Infact after hearing about this story I'm going out and try to score me some weed this weekend and build me a big tall bong!
