Via ABC News: Cough drop company Pine Brothers announced the partnership, saying that it hopes people forgive the 32-year-old swimmer, who was involved in a drunken incident at a Rio de Janeiro gas station for which he has since apologized.
Lochte will appear in print ads and commercials, advertising that its throat drops are "forgiving on your throat."
"We all make mistakes, but they're rarely given front-page scrutiny," said Rider McDowell, CEO of the privately held company. "He's a great guy who has done incredible work with charities. I'm confident that Pine Bros. fans will support our decision to give Ryan a second chance."
That goddamn white privilege. I mean that's the only excuse right? Crackers being crackers doing cracker things.
