Sponsors finally ditching Tiger Woods

Gillette, Accenture, Tag Heuer back off from disgraced golfer

Disappointingly, in spite of Tiger's outrageous degrading and disrespectful treatment of women, Nike is going to continue to use him as a role model for their products:

But there was support for Woods yesterday from Nike, who have built a golf equipment empire around his endorsement. “Tiger has been part of Nike for more than a decade,” the company said in a statement. “He is the best golfer in the world and one of the greatest athletes of his era. We look forward to his return to golf.”

I'm not their biggest merchant, but Nike makes a superior sneaker for women who pronate when they walk or run. I've always bought Nikes for myself and the children but I'm done if they don't kick this sexually and emotionally abusive man to the curb.

It must be men making these decisions because they're just not seeing the abuse of intimacy.

With all the women buying products for themselves and their children, backing off of Woods isn't rocket science.
