Good. The overall shittiness of his post aside; if you're paid to represent a brand and think it's ok to publicly state opinions of that sort - you're far too stupid to represent a brand.

IBTL And many other tour pros start scrubbing their socials... Depressing good 'ol boy homophobia not particularly surprising from a PGA pro, but the Q tinfoil hat stuff? Yikes!

He may be screwed. I can't imagine a brand doing that. His remaining ones will likely follow suit, or look very bad otherwise. Taking sponsorship for granted is a very dangerous thing.

You actually like listening to and telling homosexual, racist etc etc jokes?

 

Wow, ok, Im guessing more intelligent people prefer more intelligent humour

Plenty of successful comedians let it rip on all of the above and it’s perfectly fine, people even laugh. I’m sure there’s at least a few intelligent patrons in the crowd. Dave Chappelle is one that comes to mind off the top of my head but there’s plenty more. He has a quote that makes a lot of sense. “I support anyone’s right to be who they want to be.” My question is: “To what extent do I have to participate in your self-image?”

Each to their own, but its one thing watching something like that to actually telling them jokes yourself, i know if i started telling my friends homophobic and racist jokes they wouldn't be my friends for very long, and i wouldn't blame them

The problem is he represents other people and their business interests. When a J--- A-- makes stupid comments wearing branded products from someone else, that person is seen as an arm of those products thus those comments are in effect coming from those companies and that is business suicide. There is no choice but to cut the problem out immediately. He may continue to use the Titleist products but he won't be allowed to have their name/brand visable on anything he wears or uses.

He knew what he was doing. And no doubt he did soften from what he actually believes. Nobody in a position like that goes full blast. Guys like that get into a comfort level of making all the wisecracks and off color remarks and outright cruel comments amongst each other, and they see the same themes all over social media from sources they follow and agree with, so they rationalize it's no big deal to follow suit. I guarantee he was stunned at any blowback. It never dawns on them that there is an entire world out there that isn't fearful and exclusionary. They don't hear that side from their colleagues and they don't see that side in the galleries, not in this sport.

I had a very eloquent response to your point, but upon better judgment, realized there is no way to engage in this discussion anymore without invoking politics, so I'm going to bow out before I get myself into trouble.

Yup that’s what happens when the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. Normal everyday people see this as a harmless joke and will support Piercy more than ever.
