Barry Sanders takes to Twitter, apologizes to Detroit Lions fans who were ‘duped’

Sharing is caring!

On Monday, Brian Manzullo published a story in the Detroit Free Press revealing a new Detroit Lions beer put out by Eastern Market Brewing Company which is appropriately named, “Same Old Lager.”

Though it seems like a good concept, there is a little problem. Well, actually it could end up being a pretty big problem as the beer features an image of Lions’ legend Barry Sanders.

The problem is, Sanders’ image is allegedly being used without his permission.

Upon catching wind of the new beer that features his image, Sanders tweeted out that he has no affiliation with the beer company and that they are using the image without his permission. Barry said his legal team is working through the process of shutting it down. Sanders also apologized to any fans who were duped.
