Well, we can't say this is surprising.
Oscar Pistorius, the first double-amputee to compete in the Olympic Games in London last year, has been dropped by Thierry Mugler as the face of the brand's Amen fragrance.
Pistorius, who has been accused of shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp to death on Valentine's Day, had been the face of the fragrance since 2011.
A rep for the brand explained the decision, saying:
“Out of respect and compassion for the families implicated in this tragedy, Thierry Mugler Perfumes has taken the decision to withdraw all its campaigns with Oscar Pistorius."
We think the company definitely made the right decision in this case.
Whether Pistorius is guilty or not remains to be seen, but most brands don't particularly like associating themselves with scandal-plagued individuals anyway.
And we don't really see any reason to blame them for that!
