Sha'Carri Richardson was offered a lucrative sponsorship contract following her suspension after she tested positive for marijuana last month.
The track & field star was banned from competing in the Tokyo Olympics later this month.
However, she was offered a lucrative contract with a vape company.
Vape company Dr. Dabber reportedly offered Richardson $250,000 to be a celebrity spokesperson for the company.
In a letter obtained by theJasmineBrand, Dr. Dabber wrote:
"Dear Ms. Richardson,
We were saddened to learn of your recent suspension from the US Track and Field team, due to THC and missing the opportunity to compete at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic games. At Dr. Dabber, we believe that THC can actually have many positive effects on an athlete’s recovery and overall mental wellbeing."
The letter continued:
"Witnessing what you’re capable of in the Olympic trials, and how fabulous you looked while doing it, proved your star-power and ability to command the country’s attention. Considering your talent and grace over these past weeks, we would love to offer you the opportunity to work with our team as a spokesperson for Dr. Dabber."
The company dropped troubled Disney actor Kyle Massey amid allegations that he sent explicit material to a 13-year-old girl.
He denied the allegations but a judge issued an arrest warrant when he failed to show up for a court hearing this week.
