Biggest Celebrity Endorsement FAIL?
Bryant has inked a deal to be the face of Turkish Airlines -- to the dismay of Armenian Laker fans. In 2001, Kobe lost endorsement deals with McDonald's, Sprite and Nutella when he was charged with sexual assault.
Following his infidelity scandal, Woods lost his Gatorade, AT&T and Accenture endorsements, costing him millions of dollars.
Air Tran and Rawlings ditched Vick when he was charged with dog fighting. When he pleaded guilty, Nike dropped him, too.
When photos of Moss snorting cocaine appeared in a British tabloid in 2005, Chanel and Burberry skipped out on their contracts with the supermodel. H&M eventually dropped her as well.
Jackson's 1984 Pepsi commercial famously went bust when pyrotechnics accidentally set his hair on fire, burning his scalp. Pepsi settled with Jackson for $1.5 million.
This summer, a hair extension company sued the heiress for $35 million, claiming she failed to properly endorse their product and wore competitors' extensions.
In 1989, Madonna debuted "Like a Prayer" as a Pepsi commercial after signing a $5 million deal with the soda giant. But the next week, Madonna released her racy video for the song, forcing Pepsi to yank the ad.
In 2004, SlimFast dropped Whoopi as a spokeswoman after she made sexually explicit puns on President Bush's name at a Democratic fund-raiser.
The L.A. Lakers star signed a lucrative endorsement deal to become the face of Turkish Airlines as it launches non-stop flights between Istanbul and Los Angeles.
But Los Angeles is home to a large population of Armenians, who believe Turkey committed genocide against the ethnic group in a massacre beginning in 1915. Needless to say, they want Kobe to back out of the deal.
"Armenian Americans hope that Kobe would balance what clearly looks to be a profitable business deal with a strong moral statement against Turkey's violations of human rights, including, of course, its ongoing denial of the Armenian Genocide," the Armenian Youth Federation said on their website.
We doubt Kobe will bow to the 30 or so Armenian protesters who showed up to a recent game. But from Kobe to Tiger Woods to Michael Jackson, click through our slideshow and let us know: Who had the biggest celebrity endorsement FAIL?
