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.

Corporate America and politicians aren't they the biggest hypocrites of all? He made a mistake! My goodness how many of us had the luxury of smoking pot behind closed doors and not getting caught? How come rap stars can talk about it on tv interviews and no investigations? Little Wayne has "migraines" isn't that what he told Katie the other night? GOODNESS LET IT GO!

This is blown way out of proportion....this would of just gone away if people weren't making such a big deal out of this..its not that big of deal -- come on leave the guy alone...he's learned his lesson just from people like you...Michael has made history for what he has done in the pool and that is what we should be focused on...and to the guy who snapped the picture and sold it --boy you are the idiot of the year--hope it was worth it for you--you know karma can be a bad thing and you are heading for something and it won't be good!!!

#3 each person is responsible for their own action. no one made michael drink and drive and he got a break from endorsers and they hired him since every one does mistakes. now at 23 year olds and making the big bucks which he trained for like many musicians who train or other people who never make it but put in as many hours as phelps, he decided, yes PHELPS, made a choice. HE knew what was on the line and so like a pot head couldn't think quick enough to look to the future. if he stays clean, i'm sure he will get another chance. let's hope this time he learns SOMETHING!

GOOD!! I am sooo glad that they did this.

He is a moron for smoking pot esp coming off of the olympics, and doing it in a "public place"..

What a dummy. And i am glad that he got exposed for not being this "gold boy".. I knew he wasn't this mommas boy the media tried to portray, because anybody who has been to college knows who the biggest druggies and eff up's are..

When I was at undergrad at USC the biggest drug uses, seller, sl@ts etc were all the rich kids and or the ones who portrayed them selves to be "gold boys like Phelps"...

Haha you got busted sucka..You have to be the biggest douche bag alive to do that at a part.. Go off yourself dude for that bone head move

I hope he loses every endorsement he has.

If those companies keep him as a spokesperson they are sending the message that it's o.k. to do drugs as long as you can bring in money....Now that may be o.k. for Entertainers, but for someone who is supposed to represent health, vitality, living a clean lifestyle etc...You cant be associated with DRUGS..So you know he is a drug user before he got caught as well.



Boycott Michael Phelps..

Ok this is really starting to piss me off!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What about Kate Moss when photos off her snorting coke surfaced??? Burberry and the other "designers" canceled contracts with her and then she did like 2 week in rehab and now they are calling it "a comeback". Give the kid a break!!!!! He said he doesn't do drugs he obviously gets tested so he can't hit a bong 1 time in his life??? What is wrong with people today??? The funny thing about all this is that all the people that are giving him sh** about this either used to be pot heads or have kids that are current pot heads. He's not your swimming machine people! He needs to have some fun too. All kids smoke pot at least once in their life lets just face the facts and stop harrassing this poor guy. Kellogsg's SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Kellogg engineering personnel used the company machine shop to manufacture parts for the "Manhattan" atomic bomb project in 1945." - Source - Kellogg's website

So... they are proud they helped create a nuclear bomb...... didn't mind when they sponsored Phelps after having been convicted of a DUI....... but the bong hit is a blow to their image?

Boycott Michael Phelps!

The worst part is he would of continued to do drugs if he never got caught.. He is worse than a real drug user that is known to do drugs, because Phelps is living a double life..He pretends to be this clean cut all american kid, but is really not.

And to the comment that mentioned Kate Moss..well kate moss is a super model..Kids dont look at her the same way as michel phelps.. She promotes clothes..Michael Phelps was supposed to promote being healthy and a good role model. which he fail miserably.

MOST OF KELLOGG'S CEREAL EATEN BY KIDS IS CHOCKED FULL OF SUGAR AND CHEMICALS. ON THE OTHER HANDS IF YOU SMOKE WEED, A GIGANTIC BOWL OF KELLOGG'S CEREAL TASTES MIGHTY GOOD.

Our president admitted to smoking pot... WAY TO DISPLAY THE DOUBLE STANDARD USA! Michael Phelps put in more time and effort for the US than "any" of "you" negatives posting. None of you have any idea what it took for him to Represent the US in all his endeavors.

Michael Phelps admitted and apologized and said he would abstain to earn Americas respect again...that is how is how we are to live our lives... and he is still being crucified! I do no condone pot smoking either but he has taken the high road. All of the blind should see!

Someone took a camera shot of him in the US and sold it across the pond to some "rag." What a COWARD YOU ARE!
