FRIDAY UPDATE: Pistorius weeps uncontrollably in court as he is officially charged with murder — check out all the latest news here.

By now you’ve probably heard the tragic news involving South African track star Oscar Pistorius, an inspirational hero to millions just last summer, who has been charged with murder after allegedly shooting and killing his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home in eastern Pretoria.

Police said Steenkamp was shot in the head, the chest and the arm. Given the news, this unfortunate Nike ad that will live forever is just plain sad:

The ad has been removed from Pistorius website, but never the Internet.

Pistorius’ local ads are apparently already coming down, via @DionChang:

Also, this tweet by Steenkamp on the 13th seems too eerie now:
