This is what was at issue when some of us originally debated Mendy's comments. Yes, he has the right to say what he wants. And people have the right to criticize what he says. And Champion has the right to not want him associated with their company.
"Freedom" of speech is a little misleading ... it often comes with a cost. Sure, you're free to say whatever you want, but you're going to be held accountable for what you say. That's a lesson Mendy obviously didn't learn.
