Charlie Sheen's Hanes Commercials 'Will Not Run Again'

Hanes has ended its advertising campaign featuring Charlie Sheen because of the domestic violence charges filed against him.

Spokesman Matt Hall says they decided to take action because they take such allegations very seriously.

The television ads were stopped on December 28, the first business day after Sheen was arrested but some print ads will continue to appear into the spring due to the inability to change the ads.

"Hanes is not running the television commercials featuring Charlie Sheen, and those commercials will not run again. They were suspended effective December 28, the first date possible after Mr. Sheen's Christmas Day arrest," says Hall.

"It's a pretty standard, straightforward call when somebody who's in your commercials is arrested on suspicion of something of this magnitude. We would suspend the ads both for the company and, really, for Mr. Sheen and his family as well. Given the publicity, it makes sense to not air those ads during that time."

"There are a few trade advertisements featuring Mr. Sheen scheduled to run this spring. Unfortunately, the production schedule of those publications do not allow us to pull those ads."

Here's one of Charlie Sheen's Hanes ads, with Michael Jordan:
