Jeep has removed its Super Bowl ad featuring Bruce Springsteen from their YouTube channel and social media following news of Springsteen’s DWI incident in November 2020.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, a rep for Jeep said, “It would be inappropriate for us to comment on the details of a matter we have only read about and we cannot substantiate. But it’s also right that we pause our Big Game commercial until the actual facts can be established. Its message of community and unity is as relevant as ever. As is the message that drinking and driving can never be condoned.”

News broke yesterday via TMZ that Springsteen was cited for DWI on November 14 and was arrested at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, NJ. In addition to the DWI, Springsteen was also cited for reckless driving and consuming alcohol in a closed area.

Springsteen is reportedly scheduled to appear in court in the coming weeks and has yet to comment publically on the matter.
