Deshaun Watson

Reliant, HEB, Beats by Dre dump Watson, NIKE pauses amid ‘disturbing allegations’

      Nike - who infamously supported Colin Kapernick during his ‘F**** the police’ tour - has suspended its endorsement of Deshaun Watson amid allegations of sexual misconduct against the Houston Texans quarterback, per CNBC.

“We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and have suspended Deshaun Watson. We will continue to closely monitor the situation,” Nike said in a statement.

Beats by Dre, one of Watson’s other national sponsorship deals, has ended its relationship with the quarterback, a source told ESPN’s Sarah Barshop.

Reliant Energy, which holds the naming rights to the stadium in which the Texans play, has ended its relationship with Watson.

H-E-B said in a statement that its relationship with Watson ended with the 2020 season, and that “[t]here are no plans for future engagement.”

Watson is facing lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior from 22 women, with lawyer Tony Buzbee representing all of them.

Ashley Solis, the first massage therapist who filed a suit against the passer, identified herself during a press conference Tuesday. Solis said she suffers from “panic attacks, anxiety, and depression” due to Watson’s alleged actions in March 2020.

Lauren Baxley, a second woman who has filed a suit, also spoke out Tuesday. Baxley didn’t appear in person, but she wrote a letter addressed to Watson that was read during the press conference.

The Houston Police Department announced last week that it would start an investigation into Watson. The NFL has opened an investigation into the allegations against the Texans signal-caller as well.

The quarterback has requested a trade from the Texans.
