The US Army Pulls Their Ads Featuring Jonathan Major Who Has Officially Been Charged With Assault And Harassment

March 28, 2023 / Posted by:

Over the weekend, millions of horny hearts across the land shattered into pieces when it was alleged that Jonathan Majors allegedly attacked a woman. The unidentified woman claims Jonathan assaulted her during a physical altercation, a claim Jonathan’s lawyer denied, claiming they have evidence that will prove his innocence and that his alleged victim has recanted. Well, now Jonathan has officially been charged with many counts of assault, and because of this, Jonathan has been discharged from his duties as a spokesperson for the United States Army.

People reports new details have come out about the assault as well as the litany of charges he’s facing ahead of his court date, which is scheduled for May 8. The alleged details are brutal and Johnathan has officially been charged.

On Monday, PEOPLE obtained documents from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office that show Majors, 33, was charged with three counts of assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment in the second degree, three counts of attempted assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree, after he was arrested for an alleged domestic dispute on Saturday.

The documents show the victim told police that Majors allegedly “[struck] her about the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear,” as well as allegedly grabbed her hand and neck, “causing bruising and substantial pain.”

The ripple effect is already beginning as NBC News reports Jonathan has been removed from a bunch of recruitment ads for the US Army after these allegations surfaced. And that sounds about right because if this turns out to be true, the last thing they need is someone who allegedly hits women, telling a bunch of young men to “Be all you can be.”

Majors, who authorities said was arrested Saturday in New York on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment, was the narrator of two ads at the heart of a broader media campaign that kicked off at the start of the NCAA’s March Madness college basketball tournament.

Army leaders were hopeful that the popularity of the star of the recently released “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” would help them reach the youth audience.

In a statement Sunday, the Army’s Enterprise Marketing Office said that the Army was aware of Majors’ arrest and was “deeply concerned by the allegations.” It added that while Majors “is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete.”dA

And I bet Jonathan wishes he could go back to the good ol’ days when the internet was charmed by him. In any case, this is the perfect time to break out that Tyra Banks “We all were rooting for you!!” meme because it 100% applies in this situation.
