Nike Drops Lance Armstrong, Says That He’s Too Dope

In recent news that should surprise no one, Nike has decided to fire Lance Armstrong. The seven time Tour de France winner was recently embroiled in a scandal in which he was found of using performance enhancing drugs throughout his career. Nike wants to wash its hands of the whole matter, especially after allegations from the New York Daily News that Nike was actively covering up Lance’s drug use.

From AdAge:

“Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him,” said the Swoosh in a statement. “Nike does not condone the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs in any manner. Nike plans to continue support of the Livestrong initiatives created to unite, inspire and empower people affected by cancer.”
