Nutrisystem Drops Lawrence Taylor Following Rape Charges

And the bad news keeps on coming for Lawrence Taylor. The NFL great—who was arrested on Thursday on rape charges involving a minor, has been dropped by weight-loss program Nutrisystem, for which he’d been serving as an official endorser.

And it’s not a wait-and-see deal, either. According to a Nutrisystem spokesperson,

“We are shocked and saddened by these very serious allegations against Lawrence Taylor. Based on the severity of these allegations, Nutrisystem has decided to sever our relationship with Mr. Taylor effective immediately.”

The company has already replaced Taylor with San Diego Padres player Matt Stairs.

Too bad for LT, because it looks like things will definitely be getting heavy for him these days.
