Nike has severed ties with New England Patriots receiver Antonio Brown as the embattled NFL star faces accusations of rape and sexual assault made by his former personal trainer.
‘Antonio Brown is not a Nike athlete,’ a company spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Mail on Thursday. The Boston Globe was the first to report the news.
The article goes on to state the following:
Nike has not explained the reasoning behind the move or when, exactly, the decision was made. However, the breakup coincides with a tumultuous period for Brown, who is currently facing a sexual assault lawsuit from his former trainer, Britney Taylor, and could potentially face criminal charges in Florida for allegedly raping her at his Miami home in 2018.
