Brandon Marshall Has Lost Another Endorsement
Brandon Marshall is still feeling the backlash from not standing during the National Anthem during the opening season game against the Carolina Panthers last Thursday.
Last week Air Academy Federal Credit Union took no time in dropping Marshall as a spokesman (read story) and another company is coming out and dropping him as a result of his actions. Today we learn that Centruylink will no longer have Marshall as an endorser. Only 43 short days have passed since his endorsement of Centurylink began and now swiftly came to an end.
Centrurylink's statement was highlighted in an article at KDVR.com:
“We completely respect Brandon Marshall’s personal decision and right to take an action to support something in which he strongly believes. America is anchored in the right of individuals to express their beliefs. While we acknowledge Brandon’s right, we also believe that whatever issues we face, we also occasionally must stand together to show our allegiance to our common bond as a nation. In our view, the national anthem is one of those moments. For this reason, while we wish Brandon the best this season, we are politely terminating our agreement with him.”
Do you think Brandon Marshall will stand during the next National Anthem?
