After being arrested for the third-degree rape of a 16-year-old runaway turned prostitute, former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor has lost his endorsement deal with Nutrisystem.
The representatives of the popular weight loss program issued the following statement:
“We are shocked and saddened by these very serious allegations against Lawrence Taylor. Based on the severity of these allegations, Nutrisystem has made the decision to sever our relationship with Mr. Taylor effective immediately.”
Taylor’s attorney maintains his client’s innocence. “My client did not have sex with anybody. Period,” Arthur Aidala said. “Lawrence Taylor did not rape anybody.”
