Oscar Pistorius’ ‘I am the bullet in the chamber’ Nike ad pulled from sprinter’s website

Shortly after “Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius was taken into custody in connection with the shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, Twitter users noticed this Nike ad on the South African Olympian’s official website.

The ad no longer appears on Pistorius’ website.

Now that Pistorius has been charged with murder, Nike isn’t the only advertiser eager to distance itself.

Wow, that was quick. #mnet poster of #oscarpistorius been taken down on Rivonia road
