Speedo, Polo Ralph Lauren, Gentle Hair Removal, and mattress maker Airweave all said they would be cutting ties with Lochte after the swimmer admitted to lying about being robbed at gunpoint while in Rio.

“While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for,” Speedo said in its statement. “We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience.”

Ralph Lauren said it had signed Lochte to an endorsement deal specifically for the 2016 Games and the company will not be renewing the contract. The company, which early Monday still had a photo of Lochte wearing an Olympic medal on its Twitter home page, has since taken that image down.

Likewise, Airweave — which provided mattresses for Team USA in Rio — said its agreement with Lochte was “in support of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games” and the company has decided to end the partnership.

But Lochte’s photos were still all over the website of Gentle Hair Removal, which made Lochte a figurehead of their advertising campaigns since signing the athlete in April. Lochte appeared in a promotional video for Gentle Hair Removal, in which he said the service “was the best thing that’s ever happened. I don’t have to worry about shaving anymore.”

But Gentle Hair Removal’s parent company, Syneron-Candela (ELOS), announced Monday that it’s parting ways with Lochte.

“We hold our employees to high standards, and we expect the same of our business partners. We wish Ryan well on his future endeavors and thank him for the time he spent supporting our brand,” the company said in a statement.

  1. He will go to rehab for alcohol abuse and get more endorsements.Mark my words.It worked for Michael Phelps,another dumbass.Michael was charged with drunken driving twice,photographed smoking weed,etc.
    He went to rehab and all is forgiven.
    #Whiteprivilege

    1. ^sadly you are absolutely right.
      he will find a way to be the white savior.
      im sure the actresses playing his new girlfriend are being interviewed as we speak.
      his crisis management team already got his white privilege wardrobe picked out.
      he is about to be a brand new ryan lochte come next year.

  2. Let this be a lesson to all athletes and tourists in general, whenever they travel treat that country as well as yourselves with the highest level of respect.

      1. He probably thought as most people think of developing nations that they don’t have basic technologies and are very backward. I can’t count the number of times that people have asked me if we live in huts in the Caribbean…

  3. I would say this is going to be a hard life learning lesson but naw in a few years he’ll be able to spin this. He’s too old to have this frat boy mindset but i have to remember he’s an athlete so the world is given to him on a sliver platter.

  4. I am still upset at those who refer to him as a kid even thought he is over thirty. SMH. Let him serve as an example for celebrities who think they have some type of privilege because of their race or status.

  5. Most of his endowment deals were made because he was going to the 2016 games. And it’s a slim chance he’ll go to the Tokyo games 4 years from now. So did he really lose out on endorsement not really. The majority of those checks were CASHED!!

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
