Phil Mickelson Will Eat Your Doughnuts, But He Ain't Selling Your Doughnuts

Do you remember a year ago, when Phil MIckelson won the Masters and then was photographed, green jacket and all (above), pulling through the window of a Krispy Kreme doughnuts?

Well, as it turns out, that Krispy Kreme put up a big photo display of the event, harking itself as the "Mickelson Doughnut Shop" in Augusta, and take a wild guess how that flew over with Team Phil.

Via TMZ ...

"According to our doughnut sources, Phil’s camp was PISSED … because no one got the man’s approval before plastering his image all over the display. We’re told one of Phil’s associates even paid a little visit to the KK in question last week to make sure employees removed every last picture — and threatened legal action if they didn’t.

We’re told the doughnut store removed the display. Phil’s rep had no official comment."

I'm shocked, SHOCKED, at this! A famous athlete NOT being happy that a company is using his image to sell things without paying him a cent?!? What, no heart for the doughnut companies, Phil?!?

In all seriousness, I'm glad someone spoke up and yelled at Krispy Kreme. Who thought this was a good idea, and they'd get away with it? If Phil wants doughnuts, let him have doughnuts, and let him be the one paying you.

Not to mention the fact that Krispy Kreme donuts are disgusting.
