Chad Johnson

Fired ... Again

Here's a shocker -- something actually lasted LESS TIME than Chad Johnson's marriage to Evelyn Lozada -- his endorsement deal with Zico coconut water ... because the drink company just fired his ass ... less than a month after signing him.

A rep for Zico released a statement today, saying, "In light of recent events involving Mr. Johnson, we have decided to terminate our relationship" with him. The "recent events" obviously refer to Johnson's domestic violence arrest this weekend ... after he allegedly headbutted Lozada.

The rep adds, "The values we espouse, through our employees, our customers and our brand, are central to our mission. We have taken this proactive step to demonstrate just how important those values are." 

Zico signed Johnson on July 25th. Johnson married his soon-to-be ex-wife Evelyn on July 4th.

The downward spiral continues.

He headbutts his wife after SHE DISCOVERS A RECEIPT FOR CONDOMS and the overwhelming sympathy is towards him. I'm now beginning to understand why the black families are in their present state. The mindset is from another planet. The guys cheats on his wife but she's a bitch and gold-digger and advising him not to marry. That's pretty ghetto advise, especially considering more than half of black children are not in a two-parent, marital relationships. It has to be tough being a black woman. Probably explain why they're always angry and mean.

EVELYN IS THE DEVIL. EVERY RELATIONSHIP SHE GETS INTO TURNS TO MUSH AND DESTROYS THE MAN.

THE REASON IT WAS SO EASY FOR EV TO WALK AWAY SO EASILY AFTER BEING MARRIED FOR ONLY 41 DAYS IS BECAUSE SHE DID NOT WANT TO MARRY HIM. IT WAS AS SOON AS SHE DECIDED SHE DID NOT WANT KIDS WITH HIM THAT I ABSOLUTELY KNEW THAT EVELYN DID NOT TRULY LOVE HIM.
SHE WAS IN LOVE WITH THE FACT THAT HE WANTED TO MARRY HER.
SHE WAS IN LOVE WITH THE FACT THAT THEY WOULD GET THEIR OWN SHOW. SHE WAS CAUGHT UP IN THE MOMENT AND COULD NOT BACK OUT BECAUSE OF THE HOOPLA SURROUNDING THE WEDDING.

Why are they making such a big deal of this guy? What about Chris Brown? He did much worse than this guy! I don't see people firing him,and viewing him as a bad guy. I don't approve of men hitting women,but don't you think Chris Brown should be getting the same treatment? Chris Brown almost killed Rhianna,and everyone seems to be okay with that!

Damn, he was just arrested but not convicted? Guess anyone can call police and have them arrested and destroy their lives without even a conviction. Seems a bit overboard.

I woke up this morning and check my newspaper and saw this. I was so mad and disappointed in my government. But why they want to go after Chad? They should be going after Evelyn and VH1. I just wondering who actually made this agreement?


St. Maarten Government will seek to get back its Monies from NFL Player if they fail to abide by the Contract.

By the way it was 90,000 U.S. Dollars our government invested. Talk about all things they could have done for marketing....they invested in ghetto people who already had a bad reputation!
