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.

In and of itself it is not a big deal, but after the last Olympics in 2004 he was picked up for DUI. As if he didn't learn anything from that event. I would think all those in the public eye would be a little smarter when everyone has a cell camera now, and your 'friends' are going to sell any photo for profit(s). Any mistake could take away endorsements and you usually sign a code of conduct when you are under contract with these large companies.

What kind of moron compares someone taking a hit from a bong, which hurt no one but themselves, with a person who used steroids to cheat in competition and was convicted of fraud?

Michael Phelps is a freakin' idiot, period, point blank. And those of you standing up for him are ignorant. He's not a kid, he's not a hero, and he doesn't get a free ride just 'cause he can swim fast.

You know. He's young, kind of goofy looking. Talented, worked hard, won Olympic medals. I didn't watch the Olympics but when I saw him after the games, I thought. This guy is going to get in trouble. I mean, I just knew it. He was eating up the attention, fame and everything that came with it, just a little too much. Women all over him. Probably a huge deal for someone like him because he is not attractive. This is what I thought. I know this is not kind, but I believe it is probably the truth.

Our family has taken a vote & we are going to boycott ALL Kellogga products in support of Michael Phelps. He's young & if we can elect presidents that admit to youthful indiscretions, Kellgogs should wake up & quit listening to the moral minority. They got bad advice from their public relations department. We are also looking to see who is associated with Kelloggs & we'll endeavor to quit buying their products too. It would be great to see someone put up a website to get this movement public.

MARIJUANA IS A LEGAL MEDICAL DRUG!!!! WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL !!!! START WITH THE POLITICIANS, CELEBRITIES, AND OTHER PROFESSIONS THAT MAY BE USING HARD DRUGS AND BEHAVING BADLY. AMERICANS NEED TO FOCUS ON ENFORCING IMMIGRATION LAWS, THE ECONOMY, HEALTH CARE, JOBS AND SO MUCH MORE........IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO BE A KINDER AMERICA EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE SO MEAN.
