In the night between Wednesday 12 and Thursday, July 13, a video was uploaded online that would seem to involve VLONE’s founder, A$AP Bari, in what some have described as a possible “sexual incident“.
In the video – a glimpse of what seems to be the night of yesterday – it’s clear to A $ AP Bari telling a young woman who spent the night with the assistant of Bari,
“you f*cked my assistant, now you’re going to suck my d*ck”.
As a first response Nike, partner with VLONE for a series of Air Force 1 limited edition co-branding, this morning posted a tweet, immediately removed, announcing that “because of unlucky circumstances” it decided to break the partnership with the brand.
But why would Nike remove the tweet?
The only reasonable explanation is that Nike, taken from hysteria, wished to distance himself from A$AP Bari as soon as possible ad the news became viral and without first verifying the veracity of the charges directed at the rapper – who It would seem to have been taken into custody by the British authorities for investigations.
