In September 2014, the Baltimore Ravens released Ray Rice after a video surfaced showing him punching his then-fiancee and dragging her limp body out of an Atlantic City casino elevator in February. Shortly after, EA said it was removing him from the football video game Madden NFL 15. Nike also reportedly cut ties with Rice. His Ravens game jerseys were also quickly pulled from the shelves of sporting goods stores and stripped from online retailers.
