Once women started publicly coming out against Deshaun Watson and more evidence was being provided to support their case it was going to be harder for major brands to stick by him.
NIKE is the first domino to fall, I expect more companies to either jump ship or distance themselves from Watson soon.
Nike has suspended its endorsement deal with Deshaun Watson amid the sexual assault and inappropriate behavior allegations made against the Houston Texans quarterback, the company told CNBC on Wednesday.
“We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and have suspended Deshaun Watson. We will continue to closely monitor the situation,” Nike said in a statement to the television network.
The NFL has launched an investigation and the cops are now involved.
Watson’s defense is this is all about money and he never did anything inappropriate or made anyone do anything against their will.
