The Nike store in Minnesota’s Mall of America has pulled its Adrian Peterson merchandise from its shelves, Associated Press writer Jon Krawczynki reports.
A clerk at the Twin Cities-based store could not confirm the news, and instead referred reporters to Nike’s press hotline. The company has yet to respond.
Earlier, the Radisson hotel chain pulled its sponsorship from the Vikings organization, citing a conflict of ethical interest regarding the felony child abuse charge Peterson is facing. Peterson was indicted on Friday then benched over the weekend by the Vikings. However, the organization reinstated Peterson on Monday, underlining that the decision was in no way based on the team losing 7-30 to the New England Patriots on Sunday.
