In light of the recent murder charges ex-New England Patriot, Aaron Hernandez, is facing momentarily, Electronics Arts has dropped the axe on the professional athlete by removing him from both of its biggest football titles: NCAA Football 14 and Madden 25.

EA’s statement reads as follows:

“We have made a decision to remove Aaron Hernandez from Madden NFL 25 and NCAA Football 14. Because NCAA Football 14 was finalized prior to our decision, Hernandez’ image still appears in the Nike Skills Trainer. However, he is not in the game, and anyone who unlocks that particular Nike Skills Trainer rewards will receive an Alex Smith Ultimate Team player item instead. The image of Hernandez will be removed via a Title Update in the near future.”

Surprised? Ha.
