victim of the week: rashard mendenhall

Rewarding achievements in claiming victimization

We have our first repeat winner.

Fresh off his intellectual triumph where he compared slavery with football players opting to play a game in exchange for millions of dollars, Rashard Mendenhall did it again. When Bin Laden died, Mendenhall took that occasion to question the truth about 9/11 and Bin Laden's guilt. Yes, the same Bin Laden caught on tape boasting about perpetrating 9/11.

Well, it turns out that Champion, a company paying Mendenhall to endorse their products, didn't want their products to be associated with such controversy, so they dropped Mendenhall. And now he's suing. But it's not about the money, his lawyer says; it's about his right to express himself. As for Champion? They have no right to determine who they pay to endorse their products, no matter how badly his mouth damages their bottom line.

Clap. Clap. Clap.
