Brandon Spikes, the new England Patriot’s 2nd round rookie draft pick, has been put on blast by someone who got their hands on a sex tape of him and a “Kim Kardashin” look a like. His reps admitted that it is him in the video, but it was shot when he was in college. His agent said he, “Is really embarrassed about the video”, and “It certainly doesn’t reflect the kind of person that he is.” His cousin Rakeem McSwain even says He’s come a long, long, long way to get where he is, he’s got too much to lose to be playing around with a videotape.”
Someone tried to sell the tape to Deadspin.com for $1,500, but they wanted nothing to do with it, and since then it’s spread all over the net. The NFL said, ,”We are looking into it,” because the tape is against the NFL’s rules of conduct. They want to know exactly when the tape was shot and released. It’s already not looking good for Brandon, one of his major sponsors ReeBok has already pulled out on a deal with him because of the sex scandal.
A lot of celebrities have lost endorsement deals because of a scandal that happened in their personal lives. When Chris Brown attacked Rhianna, Wrigley gum dropped him from their ads. The Olympic swimmer Micheal Phelps was suspended from competing for 3 months and lost a multi million dollar deal with Kellogg’s, when he was caught on camera smoking weed from a Bong, and Kobe Bryant lost 3 deals one with Mcdonald’s, and the other with Sprite and Nutella after he was charged with sexual assault.
