In retaliation to an image posted by Rihanna during their spat here, Teyana posted a photo shopped image of her face superimposed on that of a boxer’s, punching an image of Rihanna’s face snapped shortly after she had been assaulted by Pop star Chris Brown back in 2009.
It’s this image, that has seen web users take to Change.Org to sign a petition launched to see Adidas–Reebok cut all ties with the ‘Google Me’ maestra, citing her decision to mock/ trivialise domestic abuse as grounds for their concern.
Now available to read and sign here, the petition has now garnered over 1,000 votes across the globe- with some of its endorsers telephoning Canton, Massachusetts head quarters to ensure their voices on the controversial matter are heard.
Founded by Adolf Dassler, Adidas’ arrangement with the ‘Christmas In Harlem‘ performer saw her serve as brand ambassador for the company’s adidas Originals Harlem GLC, which she launched in the February of this year.
This, marking one of many ventures she embarked on with the company, who also endorse Chelsea football player Frank Lampard, Rapper Nicki Minaj, tennis player Andy Murray, and who enjoyed a long running arrangement with LA Lakers’ star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
