An AXE spokesperson said the company is “troubled by T.I.’s arrest” and they are “reviewing our promotional activities“ with him. TI got the deal with AXE earlier this year because he promised he was working on being a more positive role model.
We figured that because we were still seeing T.I.’s Axe body spray commercials on television that they weren’t concerned about his recent arrest for drug possession.

A rep for AXE tells TMZ they’re “troubled by [T.I.’s] arrest” and have been forced into “reviewing our promotional activities” with the rapper. Translation — it doesn’t look good for T.I.
T.I. — real name Clifford Harris — locked down a deal with AXE earlier this year after promising the company that he was “working to become a more positive role model.”
So far, T.I. is still featured on the company’s website… but it smells like that could change at any moment.
