Nike Cuts Ties With A$AP Bari Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

 

You didn’t have to be a psychic to see this one coming. Nike has formally cut ties with A$AP Bari after the A$AP Mob member and creative’s sexual assault allegations came to light. 

A few weeks ago, a video of A$AP Bari forcibly removing the sheets from a naked woman in a hotel room appeared online. After initially saying the vid was fake, Bari came forward to apologize for the incident.

Although initial rumors said he had been arrested, that was not the case. In the apology, he asserted that he and the woman in the video remain friends.

A$AP Bari’s VLONE clothing has collaborated with Nike in the past via the Nike Air Force 1 x VLONE collection. But that is no more.

High Snobiety initially reported that the relationship was a wrap while a Nike press rep confirmed with Complex that Bari and the Swoosh will no longer be “working together.”

We won’t post the video here, but losing a biz relationship is the least of Bari’s worries all things considered.
