Tiger No Longer the Face of Watch Company

12/18/2009 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It was only a matter of time: Swiss watch company Tag Heuer has announced they won't be using Tiger Woods' tarnished image in any of their upcoming advertisements in the U.S.

Tiger Woods No Longer the Face of Watch Company

The CEO of the company told the Swiss paper Le Matin today, "We recognize Tiger Woods as a great sportsman but we have to take account of the sensitivity of some consumers in relation to recent events."

Translation: Just because Tiger ran through cocktail waitresses like clockwork, doesn't make him a good spokesman for a watch company.

I guess a few posters have never paid taxes before. Just because you earn a billion doesnt mean you keep it. Mr Wonderful skirt chaser is estimated to worth 500M.

Publish the Statement from Le Matin... you Mickey Mouse Operation of Innuendo & off the cuff statements.. Hope TMZ gets SUED !!!

BTW: TIGER still on TAG HEUER WEBSITE !!!

TIGER is a WORLDWIDE GOLFER not just in the USA.

The watch maker released a statement to CBS News after Le Matin's story was published Friday.

“The partnership with Tiger Woods will continue,” Babin said in the statement, “but we will downscale the use of his image in certain markets for a period of time, depending on his decision about returning to professional golf."

The statement said Tag Heuer will continue to support Woods' charitable foundation but will use other brand ambassadors in U.S. ads, including actor Leonardo Di Caprio.

The watch maker could not immediately be reached for comment because the story was released on the newspaper's Web site after Tag Heuer's headquarters at La Chaux-de-Fonds closed for the holidays until Jan. 4. The full interview was to be published in Saturday's editions of Le Matin.

TIGER WOODS has NOT, REPEAT Has NOT been dropped by TAH HEUER!

Damn,

And how is he now going to pay the hos for their silence!
See. He should be smart now. His PR people keep getting
things worst. These hos are going for his money, and since
his reputation is way on the floor, by now they shouldn't
care for whatever his ladies say, and save a whole ton
of money that he will now need to support his real family.
Hell with whatever Gloria's clients say, now all he has left
is to stick to his golf and keep making his millions.

I wouldn't be surprised if one of the mistresses harms Tiger after he or his lawyers or sponsors try to frame mistresses in a bad light. This is going to get ugly and Tiger is going to do all the suffering. I don't think Tiger realizes what he's got going against him! Everything his lawyers do will boomerang against Tiger.

Tiger toast in the toilet.

I am SO glad sponsors are dropping Tiger! He's only a symbol of lies, hypocrisy, and infidelity. Not exactly ideal endorsement material!!

Whop der it is    

A Tiger’s Holiday Tail
Twas the night of Thanksgiving and out of the house Tiger Woods came a flyin', chased by his spouse.
She wielded a nine iron and wasn't too merry, Cause a bimbo's phone number was in his Blackberry.
He'd been cheatin' on Elin, and the story progressed.
Woman after woman stepped up and confessed.
He'd been cheatin' with Holly, and Jaimee, and Cori, With Joselyn, and Kalika. The world had the story.
From the top of the Tour to the basement of blues, Tiger's sad sordid tale was all over the news.
With hostesses, waitresses, he had lots of sex, When not in their pants, he was sendin' them texts.
Despite all his cryin' and beggin' and pleadin', Tiger's wife went investin' a new home in Sweden.
And I heard her exclaim from her white Escalade, "If you're gettin' laid then I'm gettin' paid."
She's not pouting, in fact, she is of jolly good cheer, Her prenup made Christmas come early this year.

Tiger Woods is a pig, and if you buy something because of his spokesmanship, what does that say about you? Let all corporations drop TW as spokesman.
