Just climb back to the top of the -- golf rankings but he also landed in the middle of any new controversy.
Nike releasing a new online and causing a social media storm the and -- Tiger Woods and his quote.
Winning takes care of everything.
Now woods may be referring to golf but that quote does sound to send the wrong message at the notorious cheating scandal that ended woods is marriage.
Woman's rights lawyer Gloria Allred joins -- nice to see you Couric you too is that it lets see in Washington thank -- unhappy here I Gloria your thoughts about this Nike ad -- -- has said has Tiger Woods -- winning takes care of everything and now he's back and Nike.
Well of course winning doesn't take care of everything.
Unless you want people to think that he has had very public and very messy.
Personal life at least he did he's starting over and I hope it works out for him and Lindsay Vaughn and -- big hope that he didn't have a terrific golf career again.
But winning doesn't take care of everything what about his two little children for example who now our children of divorced because he had affairs.
And and obviously lied to his wife and lied to others with whom he was having affairs.
So I think the public is aware of that and the idea that somehow you could forget all that the public should forget about all about or everything is forgiven if you are a winning athlete I just -- the wrong message.
What Nike me in nineteen making the decision to -- -- a lot of great athletes but obviously -- tiger was -- remarkably back in fact number one but.
Yes they is Nike does certainly separated from Lance Armstrong an Oscar -- story -- who's been charged with murder in South Africa.
-- what about -- choice to.
Choose him pick him again and you said those words across the act.
Well I mean I think Nike sees him as a great branded -- -- -- me.
Before and maybe he will be again but I think this is really over the top.
I think it's wrong maybe they wanted to create the controversy maybe that's good for ninety -- that's good for marketing as far as they're concerned but I just think it's the wrong kind of controversy.
And particularly because we have seen athletes get away.
With so much coming here you you have I mean I deal with professional athletes all the time who for example committed domestic violence.
Against Arab women partners -- intimate partners whether it's their wives or their girlfriends.
And a -- if they win that does it in athletics does that mean that all is forgiven.
And that they can beat up other girlfriends or their wives as much as they want I don't think so I think that's wrong.
And I think we have to call them on it.
But cone does not -- -- -- trial laughing all the way to the bank and we know them and whether it whether it's this one and I know what the subtle messages night good night he's trying to -- But anytime some company uses -- -- someone as a spokesperson.
Who is that you know it is -- -- send a very bad message to put it bluntly.
Is -- happy you know.
We how many -- still -- following the bank doesn't -- it just it's just south of products it doesn't hurt that -- well.
It today but on the other hand I think there -- a lot of people who -- put off by this they're very offended by it and that's -- they're talking about a big time.
On FaceBook and on Twitter.
I've just a price going up this -- not I want Nike now I just heard about that tiger would say that's pretty funny.
And it may resonate with them that somehow if they can do well whatever their chosen field is everything will be forgiven their personal life doesn't matter but it does matter.
I mean women -- a.
Imagine if you give if winning takes care remedies -- number -- Nike you know wants him again and Nike products will sell.
You know maybe it's a sad commentary that -- -- -- the fact is winning you know -- it ever -- just does look the other way on something and then no because his personal indiscretions with us I think it -- just look the other way.
And and while I understand that also that his been his slogan for many years -- not -- it's now -- just this exactly on the other hand to.
You know the question is having really taken full responsibility hasn't really been accountable.
For what he is -- And then the other question is how long do we keep kicking him.
I don't think I don't think I could pick up OK -- what point do we steps in OK yet tiger you know we -- -- we've suffered enough we've we've had enough stories on you leave they know we've reported enough.
And I you've moved on an and we -- -- back in the fold and go Leo go be a spokesperson.
Well I mean I always say that I think what -- terms of forgiving somebody.
That and they need to do what.
-- AA says a twelve step program that if they've hurt another person that need to.
Take responsibility for what they've said.
And -- acknowledged the wrong to the person to whom they have committed the wrong and make amends to that person.
And I don't think he had done that it too many people.
In his life and that's -- this way -- -- to everybody in his life who I think deserves some amends.
You know I think it actually gets Nike's fault not Tiger Woods and I think you know date that it it's up ahead of tiger -- -- spoke person again.
But instead to have Tiger -- say you know what I love Nike products instead of having him say when you take care of everything.
You know I think that would be fair and I would have any problem with that and I'd like to see him succeed and -- wanna be a great athlete hopefully a really good father to his two little children.
And I like to see -- be a contributing member to the community but I do think that that's way over the top and that's the wrong message for yeah.
And and net -- hello Colbert message that's Nike trying to build -- -- that's not you know you know they could've done it would highlight Nike.
Yeah well I think it's over the top privacy I feel better and thank you and now.
