The backlash continues as Brandon Marshall has lost another endorsement deal as a result of him kneeling during the National Anthem.
On Monday, Brandon revealed CenturyLink, a cable/communications company, has ended its agreement with him.
“I just lost another endorsement,” Marshall said. “But it’s not going to make me lose any sleep. I understand there will be things that come up, criticism and support. I just have to do what I think is right.”
CenturyLink released the following statement:
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.
Well, where one door closes another one opens.
Upon hearing the news of his second lost endorsement deal, Russell Simmons has announced he’s going to “find Brandon and make him a deal!”
With all of the hate and negative remarks Brandon has received, he’s not letting hate overpower the love and positivity in his life.
The NFL star posted this beautiful message on his IG page:
What a guy!
Meanwhile…I’ll just be over here making a list of companies to boycott.
