Although Kellogg has dropped Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, Subway has taken a different tact.Michael’s picture has been removed from the sandwich chain’s website, but they are keeping him on.
‘Like most Americans, and like Michael Phelps himself, we were disappointed in his behavior,’ Megan Driscoll, the rep for Subway, tells Usmagazine.com. ‘Also like most Americans, we accept his apology. Moving forward, he remains in our plans.’ "
Subway isn’t the only chain sticking by Michael. Visa, Speedo, luxury Swiss watchmaker Omega, and athletic drink PureSports have not dropped the Olympic swimmer, either.
