The Olympic and paralympic runner allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, set to appear in the SABC1 reality show Tropika Island of Treasure 5 as a reality television contestant when the show starts on Saturday.
Last month M-Net launched a "28 Days of Oscars" marketing campaign which the pay-TV broadcaster did using and incorporating Oscar Pistorius into ads and promos for the Oscars film ceremony and movies shown across M-Net Movies channels.
"Out of respect and sympathy to the breaved, M-Net is pulling its entire Oscar campaign featuring Oscar Pistorius with immediate effect," M-Net tells me. "The promos have already been taken off all schedules and we have given instructions for other elements, like billboards, to be removed."
The police is investigating a case of murder for killing his girlfriend and will be opposing Oscar Pistorius' bail application later this afternoon.
