Oscar Pistorius, the paralympic runner who captured the world’s attention at the London Olympics last year and more recently for being charged with premeditated murder in the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, has been dropped from South Africa’s “It Gets Better” campaign.

In the video, which is to be launched on February 20th, Pistorius says “Just remember that you’re special. You don’t have to worry. You don’t have to change. Take a deep breath and remember ‘It will get better’.”

According to South African prosecutors, Pistorius, who garnered the nickname “Blade Runner” for the prosthetic legs he runs on, shot Steenkamp multiple times through a bathroom door in his home. Pistorius claims he thought she was an intruder.
