Israel Adesanya Loses BMW Ambassadorial Deal Over R@pe Comment
BMW has terminated its ambassadorial deal with Nigerian-New Zealand martial artist, Israel Adesanya over his recent r@pe comment.
Earlier this week, Israel threatened to rape a fellow UFC fighter, Kevin Holland sparking outrage across the social media landscape.
A BMW statement released to a sports magazine, Herald, read:
“Due to the comments made by an athlete online, we have reviewed our pending association with the said athlete and we have decided not to push forward with a specific ambassador for the brand at this time in New Zealand.”
Style Bender in an Instagram post, admitted to his flop when he apologized for making the r@pe threat comment and stated that he has learnt his lessons on public engagement from it.
