The man who America has had in the back of their minds all week is finally speaking up!
Puma, the iconic sportswear and shoe company, recently announced that they would be cutting all of their ties with former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez!
"Puma has ended the relationship with athlete Aaron Hernandez in light of the current situation."
We're gonna have to say this is probably a good business move considering Aaron is currently being charged with murder and is also under investigation for a drive by shooting that took place last year!
That's not exactly the kind of guy you want selling your shoes!
Aaron had recently signed a two year endorsement deal with Puma to be the face of their training gear. It's not exactly clear how much the deal was worth, but it doesn't really matter since he's kind of busy at the moment!
Don't worry Aaron, Paula totally feels your pain! LOLz!
