Prosecutors will not pursue criminal charges against Antonio Brown for sexual assault allegations due to the statute of limitations. Unfortunately for Brown, the court of public opinion has a far lower standard, and it’s about to cost him a ton of money.
According to Michael Silverman of the Boston Globe, Brown has lost one of his biggest sponsors.
Nike has reportedly cut end its sponsorship with the Patriots wide receiver.
The company did not reveal when the decision was made.

Per Fox Business, Pepsi is no longer doing business with Brown either. Helmet maker Xenith, who agreed to sponsor him only a month ago, also ended their deal with him.
The recent loss of sponsorships comes on the heels of sexual assault allegations levied against Brown.
Brittany Taylor, Brown’s former trainer, initiated a lawsuit against him earlier this month. Since then, the NFL agreed to meet with her and apparently spent upwards of 10 hours speaking with her.
The NFL reportedly won’t be placing him on the commissioner’s exempt list since no criminal charges have been filed.
