Olympian Michael Phelps' sellout to Kellogg's, where he will be pushing breakfast cereals made with refined, processed sugars that are linked to obesity and diabetes.
In doing this, Michael "Sellout" Phelps has joined the ranks of other disappointing celebrities who use their fame to line their pockets at the expense of the health and wellbeing of their own fans.
The degree of corporate commercialism in the Olympics today is simply disgusting.
It's common knowledge that Kellogg's breakfast cereals Â—aren'tÂ— part of a healthy diet (and whoever believes that needs to read the ingredients list, again) but is Michael Phelps a sellout for pocketing millions of dollars to help sell obesity-inducing food?
From a personal standpoint, if I had just won severeal Olympic medals because of my good health (and athletic prowess), I would -never- use that newfound fame to sell sickness to others. It just wouldn't be right.
Perhaps this is just a matter of placing short-term personal gain above integrity.
What do Â—youÂ— think about the "Phelps & Kellogg" advertising match?
