ASHWAUBENON - Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings is getting backlash for his brainwashed comments from a business in the shadow of Lambeau Field.
The Jersey Store in Ashwaubenon gave away about 200 items Thursday with the #85 on them. That included adult and kids jerseys, as well as hats and t-shirts - all for free. The items were gone by 2:00 in the afternoon.
Customers FOX 11 talked to Thursday morning were contemplating grabbing a Jennings jersey.
"Well we could use it as a door mat," said Jack Kotleski of Racine. "Dog bed, no, no. I like my dog too much."
When asked if Kotleski would wear the jersey, he replied, "If he came back maybe. Maybe if he came back and repented."
The manager of The Jersey Store, Mike Walters, says the owner of the store just wanted the #85 items gone.
"The owner is definitely very concerned. She feels like he really stepped over the line with the brainwashing comment."
When Jennings played for the Packers, Walters said #85 would frequent the store.
"We had a really good relationship with him. We loved him. We're not quite sure what happened when he put on the purple and gold?"
