Yep

The contract did allow for circumstances under which the it could be dropped, including if Mendenhall…

“commits or is arrested for any crime or becomes involved in any situation or occurrence tending to bring Mendenhall into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule, or tending to shock, insult or offend the majority of the consuming public.”

Regardless of their alleged merit, IMO Mendenhall's 9-11 coments pretty clearly offended the majority of the consuming public unless Hanes plans to feature Mendenhall in a marketing campaign in Afghanistan or Pakistan

Whomever Mendenall hired to file this lawsuit must have obtained his law degree in exchange for mailing in cereal box tops
