Fashion retailers Johnston & Murphy have taken off all posters and promotional material that features David Duchovny, the Californication and X-Files star.

Before his entry to rehab to seek treatment for sex addiction, posters featuring David Duchovny were heavily featured in the windows of the Johnston & Murphy Madison Avenue store in New York. Well, not anymore…
