We really don't see Oscar Pistorius getting a break anytime soon!
The paralympian allegedly murdered his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp earlier today, and while he's set for trial tomorrow, he's already feeling the wrath from his endorsement deals.
Nike recently removed an ad that features Oscar rockin' his trademark blades with the tagline, "I am the bullet in the chamber" from his personal website, and even though the Nike SA spokeswoman, Seruscka Naidoo refrained from commenting on what their future plans with Pistorius are, she did say:
"We're not commenting on our sponsorship or relationship. At this moment, it's a matter that's being investigated. [There is an] issue at hand here which is much bigger than a sponsorship."
So if Oscar is found guilty, then he can pretty much kiss his deal GOODBYE.
After all, having an ad with the word 'bullet' plastered all over it may not be the best choice for him right now!!
