Kareem Hunt Was Removed from Madden 19 Roster after His Women Assaulting Scandal

2018-12-06 08:40:33

Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, is now on his way out of Madden NFL 19,  after TMZ posted a video of the player assaulting a 19 year-old woman. And now EA Sports is wiping the digital version of Hunt from the newest Madden games including the mobile game Madden Overdrive, and the card-based Ultimate Team mode.

“We are in the process of removing Kareem Hunt from the Madden NFL 19 roster, Madden Overdrive and Madden Ultimate Team,” an EA representative said in a statement.
Hunt's removal from the game follows the Chiefs' decision to cut the running back Friday and the NFL's announcement that it would be placing Hunt on the "commissioner's exempt list," barring him from practicing, playing or attending games while it investigates the video. Hunt went unclaimed on waivers Monday, making him a free agent.
Hunt is now put on the commissioner exempt list,at which point the Chiefs released him. Any players on that list are effectively on paid leave from the league — they continue to receive most of their salary, and can be signed by another team, but cannot partake in practices or attend games.
Hunt has not yet been officially suspended; he will stay on the commissioner’s exempt list until the NFL completes its investigation and hands down a punishment. ESPN reports that the league is now considering three separate violent off-field incidents involving Hunt, including the Cleveland altercation, as it determines how long it will suspend Hunt for.
Once he’s been officially removed, anyone with Hunt on their Ultimate Team will find that he’s been replaced with a replacement generic player with identical stats to Hunt. It will surprise nobody that EA Sports was quicker to act here than the NFL was.
In fact, removing a player from Madden is not unprecedented. EA Sports also remove former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice from "Madden 15" in 2014 after video surfaced showing him punching his then-fiancée Janay Palmer during an altercation inside an elevator at an Atlantic City, New Jersey, hotel. New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was also removed from from  "Madden NFL 25" and "NCAA Football 14" in 2013 video games after he was charged with murder.


More recently, the former San Francisco 49ers linebacker, Reuben Foster was cut by the team after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery last month. Now Foster has similarly been placed on the NFL's "commissioner's exempt list." He was claimed by the Washington Redskins off of waivers. Worse still, in Madden 19, Epic Games faced a lawsuit over its use of real college football players, drew flak for censoring Colin Kaepernick's name in a Madden 19 song, and found itself in the midst of controversy this year when the rape investigation into FIFA 19 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo was re-opened.
