This is refreshing. Usually companies that have endorsements with athletes run fast at the slightest bad news surrounding a player and are quick to cancel the contract. Not in Colin Kaepernick’s case though. We reported yesterday that Kaepernick Is the subject of a sexual assault investigation stemming from an alleged incident at a Miami hotel. Not many details have been released, but as of now police say there is no evidence to suggest anything foul took place. One of Colin’s biggest endorsements, MusclePharm is standing behind him. Hit the jump.
One of Colin Kaepernick’s biggest sponsors is standing behind the 49ers QB in the wake of a sexual assault investigation — telling TMZ Sports Colin DESERVES the benefit of the doubt.
We spoke to Brad Pyatt — founder and CEO of MusclePharm — who tells us he’s aware of the situation in Miami but says, “Colin’s been a standup athlete for us. I’d be shocked if this were true.”
Colin has been a spokesperson for the supplement company since March 2013 — and Brad says he has no plans to end their relationship.
Pyatt says he’ll continue to monitor the situation but strongly believes “We should let the judicial system take its course.”
That is exactly how it should be.
