CB Kareem Jackson Apologizes For Involvement In Porn Ads

Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson has apologized to his team and fans for accidently being involved in advertisements involving the porn industry. The National Football League is looking into what happened.

“It’s not an investigation,” said Brian McCarthy, NFL spokesman in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “It’s a routine intellectual property issue. “Players were featured in team jerseys. So our office works on behalf of the clubs to protect their intellectual property rights in matters such as this.

“A company not affiliated with teams or the league may not use NFL jerseys in advertising.” Beyond Jackson, the other four players involved are receiver Jacoby Ford of the Oakland Raiders, defensive backs Brandon Flowers and Eric Berry with the Kansas City Chiefs, and Chicago Bears’ safety Major Wright. The advertisements were for Exxxotica Expo 2011 last month in Miami, Fla.

“I wanted to clarify an event that took play on May 20th at Club Play in Florida,” Jackson wrote in a statement released by his agent Tony Fleming. “I authorized my name to be used at that club with the understanding that it was going to be a party hosted by NFL players.

“It was never explained to me or did I ever authorize my name or likeness to be associated with Exxxotica Expo 2011. I am appalled that my name and likeness were used in that capacity. In addition, I never authorized the use of my likeness or picture in my NFL uniform,” Jackson wrote in his statement. “I apologize to the Houston Texans, their fans and family if I caused any embarrassment. I am sincerely sorry.”
