Adrian Peterson's All Day Foundation announced Tuesday it is has taken its website offline to "protect our charity partners from the continued harassment they have received from the media."
"Unfortunately, over the past few years when there was positive news, the media paid little attention to our nonprofit partners. Now, the charities are being harassed, judged and placed in uncomfortable positions. They are being pushed to make statements and business decisions that are taking time away from the good work they are doing," a message on the organization's website says. "The Foundation will continue to support the causes that Adrian and his family care about and will consider how the current situation impacts the direction for Adrian’s philanthropy,"
The message is the only information present on the site.
The All Day Foundation "raises funds and awareness for programs that inspire hope and build a better future for at-risk youth," a June 2012 press release said.
