Ford Issues Statement Saying He Didn’t Allow Likeness to be Used in Porn Expo

Wide receiver Jacoby Ford claims he’s another NFL player that didn’t allow his likeness to be used in a recent “Exxxotica Expo” event in Florida.

Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford issued a statement regarding the use of his likeness in an “Exxxotica Expo” event in Florida featuring pornographic materials:

“To all my fans, friends and family, I just want to clarify that I did not authorize the use of my name or likeness for the Exxxotica Expo event that took place in Miami. I was not at the event or even in the state of Florida when it took place. It’s unfortunate people don’t take the right steps to seek permission before using player’s names and it ends up portraying my support for something I would never be involved with. I stand behind the NFL’s ongoing investigation and want to make sure everyone knows that these are not the types of events I would personally endorse. I look forward to playing football and doing my best for the Raider Nation!” The event featured an ad with Ford, Chiefs defensive backs Brandon Flowers and Eric Berry, Bears safety Major Wright and Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson in their uniforms. All players have issued statements similar to that of Ford.
