Verizon Drops Akon For Simulated Sex Act During Concert

May 7, 2007 5:14 PM | Akon | R&B | Rap | Comments (1)

One bad decision can cost you a lot of money.  Verizon Wireless V Cast has dropped Akon in their commercials as a result of his simulated sex act onstage (see pics & video) with a 14 year old girl.  In a statement released by Verizon,   "This week the partnership ended. We have music services on our cell phone service and we were promoting him as one of the artists.

The other part of the sponsorship was the Gwen Stefani tour, of which he was an opening act. We are no longer sponsoring the tour." Verizon has removed Akon’s featured ring tones, as well as music and artwork from Akon's platinum-selling album “Konvicted,” from Verizon Wireless stores and handsets.  Too bad for Akon, I like his music.

During an April 12 concert in Trinidad, the R&B singer pulled the underage female (Danah Alleyne) on stage during a concert and engaged in simulated sex acts with the girl. The father, Pastor Dave Alleyne of the Flaming Word Ministry of Chaguanas, of the girl is outraged and has called the act “atrocious” but refuses to lay total blame on Akon. (See video).

According to Alleyne in a public apology last month, "I got carried away....I started to dance, as well, but I never thought it was going to be like that. I was shocked. My head was hitting the floor."
