Following his welfare scandal, former NFL quarterback Brett Favre has seemingly been removed from Copper Fit’s website.

Former Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has been in the center of a Mississippi welfare scandal. A bombshell report revealed that Favre had received welfare funding from the state’s ex-governor Phil Bryant, to help the University of Southern Mississippi State build a volleyball facility. Favre has denied this, but has seen some partnerships suspended, including with SiriusXM and ESPN Milwaukee.

It appears that another company has parted ways with Favre.

Front Office Sports pointed out that Favre’s image has been removed from Copper Fit’s website. A company spokesperson did not comment on Favre’s relationship with the company when asked by Front Office Sports.

Copper Fit removes Brett Favre from website amid welfare scandalWhile Favre’s image was removed from the website, he is still featured on the company’s YouTube and Instagram accounts.

Previously, Copper Fit had released a statement to Front Office Sports, standing by Favre.

“Copper Fit has worked with Brett Favre for nearly nine years,” Copper Fit said. “He has always acted honorably, and we know him to be a very decent man. To our knowledge, he was cleared of any wrong-doing two years ago. We are confident that will be the case in the civil suit.”

Favre was ordered to pay back $1.1 million in money he received for speeches he was paid for but did not give. He was sued for interest later on. But then, a bombshell dropped this year.

A report from Anna Wolfe of Mississippi Today revealed text messages sent between Favre, Bryant, nonprofit founder Nancy New, and former welfare agency director John Davis, where they talked about how to move at least $5 million in welfare funds to build a volleyball facility at the University of Southern Mississippi. It just so happens that Favre’s daughter played for the team at the time of the messages.

After this report broke, Favre released a statement to Fox News, where he denied any wrongdoing, claiming he’s been “unjustly smeared by the media.”
