I’m just curious @SInow who made the editorial decision to darken Antonio Brown’s skin for your feature article. Regardless of his innocence or guilt that’s something you shouldn’t be doing. pic.twitter.com/4AwPxnPrfZ

To make the matter worse, sports brands like Nike and Xenith are now canceling their contracts with Antonio Brown which can make the NFL wide receiver go broke. New England Patriots have only offered him one-year deak and he never received any money from the Raiders and instead paid around $65,000 in fines to them. Brown is not earning a single dime and his expenses are getting out of hand if it continues he will soon be out of money and declared a broke NFL player.
Nike and Xenith have Canceled Deals with Brown
Nike made an official announcement on Thursday saying that they are cutting all ties with Antonio Brown. The Patriots wide receiver has been part of many NFL controversies but sexual lawsuits are totally a different thing. The spokesperson from the global sports brand said, “Brown is not a Nike athlete.”

After the announcement, Nike has removed the Nike Tech Trainer named Antonio Brown from their website and other online stores. It is the second endorsement deal that Brown has lost after the rape allegations. The football helmet maker Xenith also cut off all ties with Brown during last Saturday. It is highly possible that other brands follows the same and cancel their deals with Brown to save their image.
Antonio Brown fighting hard on the Lawsuit
Antonio Brown understands the whole situation and fighting back in both ways. He has been focusing on his NFL games with the Patriots and practicing hard with the team. At the same time, Brown has denied every sexual lawsuit allegations and claims that they are all fake. Brown’s lawyer Darren Heitner has said that “he is following every legal remedy to clear his name and also make sure that such things don’t happen with other professional athletes.”
There is no update on the status of #Patriots WR Antonio Brown, I’m told, which means he’s still eligible at this point to play on Sunday. The league often likes to have the status of players clear on Wednesday before the biggest practice day.
