The following is an article regarding the latest information regarding the Tiger Wood’s scandal. Since his car crash that led to the unraveling of a string of affairs, Woods has been under strong public scrutiny and some people are now wondering if this will threaten some of his sponserships and endorsements. I think this event shows how society perceived Woods to be a certain person, forming a parasocial relationship with him through sports, which has resulted in such a public shock and reaction; he no longer has a “perfect” image.
