T.I. axed by AXE

The rapper T.I. has been canned by the AXE deodorant company, following his recent legal woes.

Known to the courthouse crowd as Clifford Harris, the entertainer is heading back to prison following an arrest on a drug charge while on probation for a weapons charge.

AXE told the TMZ site simply, “We will no longer feature T.I. in our promotional campaign.”

He had signed with AXE earlier this year, but has been removed already from their web site.

In brighter news, of course, T.I. is credited with having talked a depressed young man off a ledge. The two reunited during a V-103 radio visit, during which T.I. waxed prophetic.

“All of the things we go through in life, they just prepare us for the next battle,” said the rapper and film star, who is headed back to prison soon to serve 11 more months.

T.I. – keep your head up. We all make mistakes. Yours are magnified in the public eye & held up to more scrutiny. God loves you & will see you through all of this & hopefully, this will make you an even better man. we are not defined by the number of breaths we take on this earth; we are defined by the moments that take our breath away. You, your talent have taken away many breaths & continue to do so. I am not a big fan of rap, but I do enjoy & admire your courage to do what you do. You have accepted responsibility for what you did. You stand up & that is the true measure of a man. Tiny is blessed to have you & you are blessed to have her. Continue to believe in you. Oh, BTW, I loved Takers – keep doing you & I will keep you & your family in my prayers. I am old enough to be your mother & I applaud you on your acocmplishments. And for those of you who may wish to make negative comments on what I have said – I don’t pay attention to naysayers – I know that we are all God’s children. Bottom line – opinions are like a**holes – everybody has got one.

Nobody feels sorry for this cat. You only have to sit in the penalty box for 11 months. It could have been three years. I have a brother that just got 10 years for basically doing the same stupid stuff you do. Sit in the can, collect your Takers money, do some push-ups and have a nice day.

T.I. is about as stupid as one person can get. He clearly has no respect for the system, his fans and his freedom. In a interview he told everyone he was sorry. That’s what he said the first time he was busted.

I do not condone the illegal acts of T.I. or any other person, especially celebrities; however I am happy that he only has 11 months to serve for his recent setback. I believe this is as fair a sentence that he will ever get as a young black male that happens to be a celebrity.

Not to throw stones, but didn’t Paris Hilton just get community service for cocaine possession and then get PROBATION…only to be an accomplice to hit-and-run a week later.

People make mistakes, people learn. Some change, some don’t. I believe in the good a person does and T.I. has done A LOT more good than he has bad.Let him serve his time and we can move on.

T.I. you are in my prayers and I have a business opportunity for you when you are released.

TI like others (Lindsay Lohan) think they are above the law and because they have expensive celebrity lawyers and judges are lenient towards them, they get too much probation and little ‘jail time’. Must be nice to get to make their mistakes over and over again.

For those fools talking bout TI problems are magnafied cause he is a celeb keep the following in mind……For the amount of guns he was trying to purchase the average fool would have received 20yrs. TI’s celeb status got him 1yr + probation. Don’t be so quick to fuss about this fool being a celeb. There are 2 black sisters in Mississippi were both sentence to as teens to double murder for robbing a man of $11 and NO ONE WAS KILLED. They have already served 15yrs while the sentencing guidelines are now under review for their case. Convicted of murder & no one was killed or even harmed. Only in Miss or Tx, Only black kids.

Excuse me if I don’t feel bad for T.I.P and his light sentence.

I can understand mainstream companies dropping T.I., but you are talking about a company that currently runs an ad that refers to washing your balls in the shower. Are they really concerned that T.I.’s arrest is going to hurt their image?

I agree that TI should go to prison. The problem I have is with our flawed legal system where similar acts in different locations have totally different results. Leif Garret wonderboy singer from the past was just sentenced to rehab. He is a repeat offender. Put him in jail. Pro football player is in prison for shooting himself in a public place. Another pro football player hits and kills a pedestrian while under the influence and gets a slap on the wrist. Whats up with the system. It sucks so bad.

Everyone can talk about the wrong that T.I. has done, but what about Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohn. She always get slaps on the wrist for the stupid stuff she does, but she always walks away. The justice system and the public is real stupid because if you are going to be hard on celebrity than be hard on all. They just got into the same trouble T.I. did and they all walk away free.

People act like just because you are famous you are not human and you are. They make mistakes just like we do. The only difference is we are not on television like they are. Everyone should forgive and forget, because if you were in that situation you would want to be forgiving also.

T.I. I see all of your well-wishers are praying for you, but I must say, you need to do some reading and praying yourself. The “haters” of which many of your supporters criticise,appear to be the only voices of reason. Guess what? When much is given; much is required Clifford. Do you think you are success if the majority of your fans watch you continously go in and out of jail? Sing about redemption and go right back to what you always did–break the law? The parable of the talents seems to be a story you could learn from.

TI you are very blessed to have money to keep you from serving lots of time. My grandson was riding with the wrong crowd, and someone got shot, but they lived. He got more time than anyone, 70 years. His lawyer sold him out, and now he has to do at least 35 years. His children will be adults, and his wife will be long gone. He is only 23 years old. Money talks.

Hey Clifford, while you are locked up for another year how about taking a deep look at yourself in the mirror cause you have some serious problems that you haven’t learned from. Just cause you are a celeb doesn’t mean you can break the law always. Everyone, this is not T.I’s first drug charge, he has been busted before and he should be locked up for life by now.

Who cares if some hip-hop dimwit goes back to jail or not? Oh, I know, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution does. Just scan their online headlines on most days. B.S. newspaper with no editorial staff to brag about now. Stupid azz stuff. Celebrity Worship Here. T.I. might be a nice CELEBRITY. Stupid decisions for the Love of the Almighty Dollar. Holla!

You cannot compare TI to Linsey or Paris. He was orginially sentence in FEDERAL court for trying to purchase a boat load of illegal guns. His fans know what was up. He was trying to get revenge at the man who killed somebody in his crew.

@Jazzyred…The reason he received a light sentence is cause he is a public figure. You would have received 20yrs baby. Humans make mistakes. A wise person learn from their mistakes. A stupid person keep making mistakes. A really stupid person keep making the SAME mistakes over and over and over and over again.

Actually TI can be compared to any other celebrity that has been charged with the same crime. No he is not a first time offender and neither were those other celebrities. Again I say he deserves to serve time for his illegal activity, however those other celebrities deserve to serve time as well.

Until the laws and the criminal justice system are equated equally in every city and every state in the US, people will always disagree on the punishments that ALL people receive, including celebrities.

He knew he was on probation…he broke the law…he’s going back to prison…what is so difficult to understand. By the way, the term mistake is so overrated. I think the actual formula for mistake is(mistake = excuse).

It seems like every time T.I. is at the top of his game, he does something stupid. His latest album is titled “Uncaged”, but he might want to rethink it…perhaps “Caged Again”. Yes, everyone makes mistakes, but if you are on parole, driving a maybach, making a u-turn, in the company of a felon and you have drugs on you…I think you deserve what you get. What bothers me most is the hypocrisy of him talking to kids about staying away from the very thing he continues to get caught using. Don’t compare his sentence with what happens with Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton…this is his own doing. How can someone who has everything continue to randomly throw it all away? There really aren’t any legitimate excuses this time. And I bet you a million bucks that there will be a next time…he just doesn’t get it…sorry.

Thank you Axe for being the few that finally holds people accountable for their actions. I can forgive a person for one big mistake, but to continue making bad judgements just because you feel that your stardom and fame will free you from them, is just being irresponsible and arrogant. I hope Andrew Young of Atlanta is listening. When are we going to stop putting people up on pedestal and get back to standing up for the right morals and values regardless of who a person is, and how much money they have. TI is very talented and he does good in the community, but like the ordinary citizen, he should be accountable for his actions or suffer consequences. He shouldn’t be hailed a hero.

But obviously he thinks that he is on top of the world and can do what he likes. There is nothing to support only his music, he was looked out for again by only getting 11 months, he was suppose to get 2 years!

Thanks MiMA, and I think you nailed it too. Andy Young has to distance himself from this character. He is a true civil rights legend, and he can’t afford to compromise all he has worked for, stood for and fought for for someone who can merely write and rap rhymes. I think the saddest thing is T.I. has kids..lots of them, and he is depriving them of a Father. Those are really the only kids he is accountable to as a role model, and he has failed miserably. On the other hand, they may be better off without him if this is the best he can do, and he can’t get his act together. Any parent who has convinced their child that T.I. is a role model needs a head check.

There is a major problem in our country, and the world for that matter. It seems that when people reach celebrity status that their ‘fans’ refuse to hold them accountable for their actions. Just because you love him, or think hes cute, or like his music, doesn’t mean that you dont hold him accountable. Alot of the reason why these celebrities continue to get in trouble is because some of you blind “fans” run right back to them, kiss their as#es, and talk about “no matter what, we still support you and love you”. GET REAL PEOPLE. This irresponsible man, and his irresponsible wife, HAVE KIDS!!!!! He didnt make a mistake, mistake is singular, and means one mess up. He a habitual mistake maker, he and his wife, and they need help. And people stop talking about keep god first, because he is not thinking about god with his behavior. There kids need them the most. What kind of example are you setting for your children when your always in trouble with the law. Just because they have a little money doesnt make them great parents. Kids need parents that are consistent role models and who can stay out of jail and off drugs, not parents who have money and can buy them nice clothes and video games. I feel more sorry for his children more than I do for he and his wife.

And for those of you speaking about Andrew Young. You’re right. He sold his morals for money. He should be hanging his head in shame. Somebody needs to stand for something.
