Rashard Mendenhall Loses Endorsement Deal

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Rashard Mendenhall has lost an endorsement.

Champion cut ties with the Steelers running back because of his controversial tweets questioning the celebration of Osama bin Laden’s death, the architect of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to USA Today.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall is being dropped as an endorser by corporate sponsor Champion over his controversial tweets objecting to the celebration over the death of Osama bin Laden at the hands of U.S. commandos Sunday.

Champion is "ending our business relationship" with Mendenhall since the athletic brand doesn't think he "can appropriately represent Champion," spokesman Matt Hall told Game On! Thursday night.
