In a move that’s been expected ever since T.I. was arrested last month on drug charges — and was subsequently sent back to prison for 11 months — AXE body spray has officially dropped the rapper as a spokesperson, less than a year after the company signed him to be the face of their product after his release from prison on gun charges.
“We will no longer feature T.I. in our promotional campaign,” the company said in a statement. Photos of T.I. have been removed from its website.
AXE, which staged one of T.I.’s first post-prison performances with a gig in New York, said earlier that it was “troubled” by T.I.’s drug arrest last month.
