Tiger Woods Dropped by AT&T
12/31/2009 AT 01:00 PM EST
AT&T announced Thursday that it is ending its endorsement deal with the scandal-ridden golfer, even though the "multi-year" contract was only signed in early 2009. An AT&T logo had appeared on Woods's golf bag, and he and the company had several links through his charitable foundation and AT&T-branded golf tournaments.
Consulting company Accenture has already ditched the philandering athlete, and Gillette has played down its relationship with Woods in advertisements and packaging. Other companies, like Pepsi, Nike and Electronic Arts, have either said they're sticking by Woods or remained mum.
