Paying a painful price for his brutal attack on a dog, Terry Yee loses two more distributorships.
- Osprey Packs dropped him, now Nalgene and Craghoppers
- Animal abuse not representative of brands’ values and principles
- More calls to boycott Yee’s company, Tearproof
Paying a painful price for his brutal attack on a dog.
Terry Yee’s animal abuse has cost his business the distributorship of two more brands after US adventure equipment firm Osprey Packs severed ties with Yee’s company, Tearproof Sdn Bhd.
US-based water-bottle maker Nalgene and UK-based outdoor clothing manufacturer Craghoppers are discontinuing their business relationship with Tearproof, dropping the company as a distributor of their products.
Both companies say Yee’s abuse of a dog does not represent their values and principles, echoing the same sentiment as Osprey Packs.
Social media users took to Facebook to complain about Yee, many posting on Nalgene’s official Facebook page, asking the company to drop Yee’s Tearproof.
“Please pull your product placement at the Tearproof stores in Malaysia. The owner is an animal abuser and I for one will not purchase any of your products as long as you’re listed there. Osprey Packs has announced their decision to pull out. I hope you do the right thing too,” a Facebook user named Prabha Krisnan said.
Another user, Troy Medici, said: “In Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, Nalgene is sold by an unethical business owner named Terry Yee Kok Chew under the registered company names Tearproof and Sports Connection. Nalgene USA should cease its business connections with this animal abuser.”
Facebook users had also been calling for Craghoppers to drop Tearproof.
Yee’s woes are far from over. His case is under investigation by the police and the Department of Veterinary Services. And more companies may enter the fray in cutting ties with Yee’s business.
