While you and many other intelligent people were able to discern the meaning of his tweets, you have to realize that many people were highly upset with his remarks. Champion is a business that relies on advertising, and having a player with a negative stigma placed on him, right or wrong, being one of that company's high-profile names associated with their product may steer potential buyers to a different product. I'm with you that they were a bit hasty, but understand their dilemma as well. This may be a good and expensive lesson for Mendenhall and will hopefully dissuade him from posting further controversial tweets.
