Pistorius was charged with murder last week in the shooting of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, and is currently on trial in South Africa. In light of the situation at hand, Thierry Mugler has decided to drop their contract with Pistorius.
“Out of respect and compassion for the families implicated in this tragedy, Thierry Mugler Perfumes has taken the decision to withdraw all its campaigns with Oscar Pistorius.”
A similar statement was released by Nike yesterday, however the sporting goods giant is being more cautious with their decision and holding out until Pistorius is given a fair trial:
“Nike has suspended its contract with Oscar Pistorius. We believe Oscar Pistorius should be afforded due process and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
