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.

Yeah so the contract was going to be up anyways? I'm sure this incident didn't help but everyone is making it seem like it was automatic it was going to be renewed. It very well may not of been and everyone can make it a bigger deal than it really is.

Who cares?! Would he be getting the boot if he was filmed drinking or smoking cigarettes? I love how something being made illegal automatically makes it " bad " Somehow a bunch of ill informed, self righteous congressmen have the magical ability to make things good or bad. Absurd. I don't even smoke pot, but.....WHO CARES?! Grow up already.

LMFAO at the 1st answer! LOL....

BUT why are you guys giving him so much sympathy? Michael has millions of dollars yet he isnt smart enough to smoke in private? He is STUPID and deserves what he gets. He spoiled the good life for himself ....

It simply amazes me that our President of the United States can admit to "inhaling" and be elected into office, but poor Michael Phelps gets hung out to dry. I think I need to smoke a joint!

Terrible example for the kids, he did it so it should be ok. The people that are siding with him that it's ok do it or have done it themselves!!!!

It would be more appropriate for Kelloggs to have a fat kid with diabetes to represent their sugary junk food anyway...

POT IS NOT SATAN'S WEED.
The only reason it's illegal is the government, based on racism. Look it up.
This shouldn't be a reason to drop Phelps. Maybe because he acts like a Douchey McDoucherson.
I'd drop him for that.

Phelps has been an embarassment since he left China. Between the booze, the poker and the skank stripper girlfriend, Kellogg needed just one straw to break the sponsorship back. Thankfully for them, he gave all of us a bong hit pic. Now Kellogg can move on to their next flavor of the month and Phelps can go back to being just another pothead.
