CM Punk is never one to hold his tongue on anything, so when it was announced yesterday that NIKE had signed UFC Superstar Jon Jones to a mega contract he wasn’t pleased.
The reason why is because Jones is a convicted drunk driver.
WWE superstar C.M. Punk is furious with Nike … claiming the sportswear giant is sending a HORRIBLE message to kids by signing UFC champ Jon “Bones” Jones … who happens to be a convicted drunk driver.
But moments after the announcement … WWE champ C.M. Punk unloaded on The Swoosh … saying, “Let’s reward more drunk drivers with endorsement deals! #responsibility.”
Punk — who doesn’t drink or smoke — is referring to Jon’s DUI conviction, stemming from a May 19 incident in which Jones drunkenly crashed his Bentley into a utility pole.
I will give Punk credit for not going after Jones, because it isn’t Jones’ fault Nike is giving him a duffel bag full of money.
Punk should know that NIKE like most major companies only cares about money, so a DUI wasn’t going to stop them from signing Jones.
