Jeep Pulls Bruce Springsteen Ad After News Of DWI

Videos by OutKick

New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen was already fairly far removed from his, uh, glory days, but things have recently taken a turn for the worse after it was revealed Springsteen was arrested in November for suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Per CNN, Springsteen was arrested at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, N.J., on Nov. 14. He was charged with DWI, reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area.

Now, Jeep is pulling its Springsteen ad, which first ran Sunday during the Super Bowl. After all, Jeeps and booze don’t mix.

“It would be inappropriate for us to comment without details on a matter that we cannot substantiate,” a Jeep spokesperson told E! News. “But it’s also right that we pause our big-game commercial until the actual facts can be established. It’s message of community and unity is as relevant as ever.”

A source told CNN Entertainment that Springsteen took a shot of tequila in a photograph with fans prior to getting stopped. “That’s typical Bruce,” the source said.

“I don’t know why they stopped him,” the source added. “I mean technically you’re not allowed to drink in a state park, and I don’t know, maybe, if a policeman sees somebody drinking and doesn’t give them a ticket, they lose their job. Any kind of alcohol-related driving thing is serious.”

The ad marked the first time Springsteen, 71, had appeared in a commercial. With the way things are going, it may also be his last.

  1. You know damn well Jeep knew this before the Super Bowl, but that wasn’t going to stop them from airing their woke commercial in front of 95M people. They were waiting until the truth came out, then they pulled the plug. Win-win for them because even bad publicity is better than none….and Jeep is trending so…..

  2. A Red star? What the hell? China and Russia use a red star – we use a white star here in the U.S. but what the hell would he know about that. Another reason why it’s hard go back to my home state (NJ) when knuckleheads like this are the best we can offer the world.

  3. He’s a disgrace to New Jersey. He and Bon Jovi are two pussy, white assholes from our state. His music was really good back in the day. Now he, along with many far left entertainers past their relevance, attempt to stay in the public eye by repeatedly bashing Trump and his supporters. Fuck little Sissy Bruce. And take the earring out you 71 year old dickhead. Go suck off Obama.
