Nutrisystem Drops Lawrence Taylor

5/7/2010 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The people at Nutrisystem just got rid of a quick 230 pounds -- as in, they just fired Lawrence Taylor due to the "severity" of the allegations he's facing in his statutory rape case.

Lawrence Taylor dropped from Nutrisystem

TMZ spoke to a rep at the weight loss company, who told us, "We are shocked and saddened by these very serious allegations against Lawrence Taylor." 

The rep added, "Based on the severity of these allegations, Nutrisystem has made the decision to sever our relationship with Mr. Taylor effective immediately."

And Nutrisystem really does work fast -- they've already replaced Taylor's image on their website with slimmed down San Diego Padres star Matt Stairs.

24. hey electriczipper, this is the U.S., not Europe, and sex with minors is a felony. That means it's a crime in this country. Ignorance of age is no legal excuse so your comments are, typically, idiotic. why don't you go to Europe so you can patronage child sex workers, you pedophile loser.

Mary, for your edification Nutrisystem is not the legal system. This guy will get due process....but he's looking pretty guilty. Nutrisystem is a business. That means that they have to make money and probably answer to stockholders. Nobody will use their product, i.e. BUY their product if it is endorse by someone that really looks guilty of raping a child. Do you understand now? Why do you people always defend successful black people? If he was poor, you wouldn't. Do you think just because he's black that it's okay? Just like O.J., you don't really care if he's guilty or not, just that he's black? That's why there is such a racial divide in this country, right and wrong has nothing to do with white or black. We know he did it, just like we know OJ did it, and we know Casey Anthony did it. The legal system is flawed, but people know rape and murder is wrong.

This is such a shame! LT is one of my favorite players from the 80s. He is arguably the greatest defensive player in the history of the NFL. Oh how the mighty have fallen.



Obviously it's not about desperation. He's married, so he could have sex with his wife anytime he wanted (in theory LOL). Also, he could have just paid a prostitute of legal age, but that wasn't good enough.



He had to find somebody he could dominate and control. It's not just about "getting off," it's about welding power over someboody who's vulnerable IMO.



Lawrence is a celebrity, who happens to be a good looking guy, so he could have found just about anybody. It's a shame he allegedly forced himself on a underage girl. She must have been absolutely terrified. What a harrowing ordeal for anybody to go through, let alone a 16-year-old girl.



If he's guilty, I hope they throw the book at him. This isn't his first brush with the law, and probably won't be his last.

Seriously every child your mother had must have born brain dead.I never said it was okay,I just said it happens all the time and by the way, I have 4 kids and have been in the Air Force Security Police for over 22 years working my butt off to protect people like you who sit on their butts and make judgemental decisions on other people without having a clue about real life..so go back to watching the view and shuddddddup

What a piece of crap this guy is! Who cast him on DWTS anyway? He deserves to fry...long overdue justice for his criminal behavior. I'm so tired of criminals of any persuasion getting off easy. FRY HIS ASS! Human trafficing is a CRIME! Too bad that everyone that thinks it's not a big deal doesn't have it done to them. Then they could see how they like it. And this guy's WIFE is part of the problem. She has proclaimed this as a conspiracy. Hope she gets a heaping dose of reality herself.

Nutrisystem is making a mistake, they can turn this into a positive. They can have LT back on saying sometimes, with his busy schedule having sex with hookers at 3 in the morning, he doesn'talways have time to eat right. That's why he uses nutrisystem, for a busy John on the go. What do you think guys, should I get into advertising? I think this would be a great hook for overweight clients who use hookers! they can relate to LT.

To poster #15, Mark (poster #14) is right. It has nothing to do with the Klan, stats don't lie. 70% out of wedlock birthrate in that community. It's chaotic and very little has been done to address it. I don't really blame NutriSystem for firing Mr. Taylor. Rape allegation aside, which I don't think is true, prostitution is still illegal in this country, plus it's seedy. Not a good spokesman for the product.
