Ralph Lauren drops Justin Thomas for anti-gay slur
quote:

We are disheartened by Mr. Thomas’s recent language, which is entirely inconsistent with our values," the statement read. "While we acknowledge that he has apologized and recognizes the severity of his words, he is a paid ambassador of our brand and his actions conflict with the inclusive culture that we strive to uphold. In reflecting on the responsibility we have to all of our stakeholders, we have decided to discontinue our sponsorship of Mr. Thomas at this time.

Thomas is an idiot. This is 2021. Ralph Lauren is a big name in the fashion industry. Lots of gay dudes in that industry. He lost out on a lot cash and free clothes.

The Polo get-ups are the most unlikable part about JT. He's going to feast on a massive new endorsement deal. Sucks to suck for Polo.

He’s gonna get scooped up quick regardless of what he said. He’s a top name on the Tour.

What did he say at the Sentry Tournament? On 9 January, after missing a 5-foot par putt during a tournament at the championships, Thomas uttered: “fa***t”


That's it?

Do these people really think that Justin Thomas has a problem with gays ?

By who? Even Wal-Mart won't want him. Do you think Nike and Foot Joy are banging on his door? Do you think Hogan is wants a guy who said that? It's about image as much as about golf.

But even Tiger never said anything racist or homophobic or bigoted.

Which is ironic because I always thought he looked like a fig in those outfits

I can see how you would be offended by what JT said.

By any golf company. Peter Millar. Their target clients aren’t liberals or gays. Thomas is arguable the biggest name on Tour outside Tiger. He’ll be fine. Polo is dumb for dropping him

re: Ralph Lauren drops Justin Thomas for anti-gay slur
I feel like RL very easily could have let this slide. Doesn’t seem like it has really blown up super negatively. With that said, if you say that word in today’s world you are probably going to have issues.
