In light of his possible connection to a murder investigation, Cytosport, the company behind Muscle Milk, has dropped Patriots Tight End Aaron Hernandez from his endorsement.
Cytosport released the following statement, per CBS Boston:
“In light of the investigation involving Aaron Hernandez, CytoSport is terminating its endorsement contract with Mr. Hernandez, effective immediately.”
Most people seem to believe that Hernandez has some kind of connection to the murder, and the ramifications of that are being seen here. The police have already searched his home multiple times, and have now ordered for his arrest.
At first, it was reported that they did not have a warrant out for him, but that has changed yet again within the last hour or so. There is evidence suggesting that Hernandez was attempting to cover-up his involvement, as he destroyed his home security system, as well as his cell phone.
Both certainly suggest that he is involved, as there is no other reason why he would do so. However, he is innocent until proven guilty in terms of his involvement with the homicide. As of now though, he is obstructing justice.
Hernandez’s whereabouts are currently unknown, but more information is sure to surface, and things may end up changing. As they do, be sure to check back here at Fansided for updated information.
