Some say any publicity is good publicity, and Ryan Lochte may be proving that. The Olympic swimmer who’s been caught in a lie about being assaulted in Rio has picked up a new endorsement deal with Pine Bros., a cough drop manufacturer.
TMZ reports Lochte will be apart of a new campaign about the drops being forgiving on sore throats. The cough drop company’s CEO said everyone makes mistakes and Lochte deserves a second chance.
The swimmer will reportedly also appear on next season’s Dancing with the Stars.
I guess there’s a lesson here, kids. Don’t listen to your parents when they tell you not to lie or exaggerate… you could get TV appearances and spokesperson deals for it!
