Hip-Hop Rumors: Will Adidas Drop The Racist?

With all the rappers that are getting wasted off off controversial statements, there is increased speculation that this dude Sergio Garcia may get dropped from adidas. Adidas can thank African Americans for saving the brand at one point. But, you gotta wonder what they think of us considering just a year or so ago, they had the “slave shoe,” which was never released. Here is a recap from ESPN.

The verbal sparring between Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods continued Wednesday after Woods tweeted back at Garcia in response to comments made by Garcia that could be perceived as a racial reference aimed at the world’s No. 1 player.

On Wednesday morning, Tiger tweeted this: “The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate.

“I’m confident that there is real regret that the remark was made.

“The Players ended nearly two weeks ago and it’s long past time to move on and talk about golf.”

Garcia, who later issued an apology, took issue with Woods for what he viewed as a breach of golf course etiquette during the third round of The Players Championship two weeks ago, was asked in jest at a European Tour function if he would be inviting Woods to dinner during next month’s U.S. Open.

“We’ll have him ’round every night,” Garcia said, according to multiple media reports. “We will serve fried chicken.”
“Fried chicken” references are associated with racial stereotypes of African-Americans. A similar comment got Fuzzy Zoeller in trouble following the 1997 Masters, when he quipped that fried chicken would be served at the following year’s champions’ dinner, which Woods would host as defending champion.
According to media reports, Garcia left the European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night at the BMW PGA Championship in Virginia Water, England, before he could be questioned. He later issued a statement through the European Tour.
“I apologize for any offense that may have been caused by my comment on stage during the European Tour Players’ Awards dinner,” Garcia said. “I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner.”

Garcia addressed the media on Wednesday in England and apologized again, saying “my answer was totally stupid and out of place. I feel sick about it.”

OHHHH…he’s sick after he says it. FOH!

  • im still amazed that everyone doesnt love fried chicken….

    • abe

      i love fried chicken

    • just_some_bastard #ALCOHOLIC

      It taste good but it’s poison. I don’t eat fried anything.

  • Terrance Goodman

    He won’t loose his deal you know why? But black ppl won’t band together n make it so.instead this coon woods pretends he’s not black . All the while some pretend that racism is gone. No it went more uncover . Why have the clan ?! Shit rest back n let them destroy themselves

    • brotha_man

      its hard to stand by tiger when even he shuns the black community

  • abe

    tha shit was funny

    • ZUBU

      Sergio’s statement is not like saying he is going to serve beans and rice; it is akin to telling an Asian you will serve dog or cat. Dude grow the fuckkk up. Food for thought: You can let people think you’re dumb, or you can open your mouth and remove all doubt!

      • abe

        thanks for the food for thought

  • abe

    its like saying Sergio Garcia is gonna host and they will serve rice n beans ,im cuban i wouldn’t take offense to it at all

    • Celz

      That’s cuz black people eat rice and beans too. Naw but the fried chicken remark has racist connotations that are well known. Kinda like refried beans and Hispanics more than beans and rice..

  • hoeyuno

    That would be fried chicken and a side of dim sum…

    • abe


    • churchboy2

      Same on me for laughing so hard.

  • ZUBU

    Of course Adidas should cut ties with Sergio, the statement was blatantly racist. As Public Enemy said in regard to Elvis: “The sucker was simple and plain motha fuckkk him and John Wayne.” Sergio knew exactly what he was doing, much like Fuzzy Zoeller knew exactly what he was doing. Fuzzy paid the price for sticking his racist foot in his mouth and so should Sergio. It does not surprise me that Sergio harbors those types of feelings, but it surprises me that he was dumb enough to state those sentiments in public!

  • I hope Sergio learned his lesson. “I feel sick about it.” ? Yea, Sergio got sick as soon as he knew some of those commas are about to get erased from his checks. #OneLife #OneWorld #OneLight

    What be on these peoples minds when they be making dumbass comments like that in public? Damn.. common sense aint all that damn common after all

  • just_some_bastard #ALCOHOLIC

    It was stupid no doubt but we all make mistakes and he apologized so I’m over it. Can’t stay mad forever.

  • wickedjones

    I think the point of this argument is. If Rick Ross, Lil Wayne says something out of pocket they loose their endorsements. But when someone with the lighter complexion effs up they make up excuses.

    • Celz

      He also gave a man’s apology BEFORE the controversy started. Not a half a$$ed I’m sorry you were offended by my words a week later.. That’s what most racists and ignorant rappers say

  • I wouldn’t worry about this… Sergio is going to lose some money behind those comments. It won’t take another month.

  • therealz

    ok, we love fried chicken doe!

    • brotha_man

      Just cuz I eat Chicken and Watermelon they think that something’s wrong with me. Let me tell you somethin if you don’t like chicken and watermelon, something is wrong with you, there is something wrong with you! Where are all these people who don’t like Chicken and Watermelon? I’m sick of hearing about how bad it is, it’s great! I’m waiting for Chicken to approach me to do a commercial nigga, I’ll do it for free Chicken! It’s the least I can do. -Dave Chappelle-

  • tim jones

    ya’ll know adidas was started by a guy that was also apart of the nazi party right? totally different company today though. you stated African Americans saved the company but i still dont understand why they wanted to.

    • scullyson

      Whoa I didnt know that but yea your right. two brothers. aint that sum ish ?

  • Andre Terrell-Dartavius Smith

    I don’t get it….they won’t us to except being gay but a man can’t speak the truth about chicken which we ALL know that black people love ever so dearly. And when did Tiger Woods get the Black Card?

    • KC The American Pimp

      nigga shut up

    • Delonte West

      yeah nigga, shut up.

  • Herb_Bane

    This is the PGA community reminding Tiger (once again) that no matter how much money you got, how nice you are at golf, you’ll always be a nicca in they eyes.

  • disqus_v78bsFRfAk

    this isn’t hip hop. not at all. i need to drop allhiphop.

  • atle fjeldstad

    I think we should stop talking about race.. That would be a start to ending this racism s##t. Maybe if people could stop catching feelings, and be non-reactional to words, we`ll get rid of this.
    There`s no such a thing as different races. Just skin variations of skin tones. Let`s all mix and blend the colors, until everybody got the same color.
    I don`t really care if the man is a racist….. He said some stupid shit. Besides, if being black has to do with something else than skin tone, then i`m blacker than tiger woods..
    Who gives a f##k about what food is eaten by who?

    • bisolabliss

      You have no knowledge of the historical bedrock/context of the issue to take on this argument neither do you understand the plight and struggles of my people against institutionalized racism, so just backdafucup and go do what it is you do

    • Really?

      Ignoring talking about race is not going to get rid of racism.

  • water_ur_seeds

    hes a prick, hope they do drop him, hes always moaning about tiger this and tiger that, stop being a bitch and play golf… tigers a prick to, but garcia went to far, dude is mad emotional… props to tiger for handling it with dignity…

    • wickedjones

      i agree

  • yall do know the guy who made adidas was a nazi, right? his nazi brother started puma too

  • Why so upset? do black people do not like chicken?

    • D.R.Universal
