Reggie Bush And LeBron James Criticized For Praising Jameis Winston

By  | 

Reggie Bush and LeBron James came under fire on Monday evening after praising Florida State’s quarter back, Jameis Winston.

After Florida State’s victory over Auburn in the BCS Championship game, Winston gave a post-game interview that LeBron and Reggie were clearly very fond of.

“Love listening to this dude Jameis Winston talk after games! Walks and talks like a true champion! A great role model for kids to look up to,” Bush wrote on Twitter.

LeBron also took to Twitter, writing: “UN-Freaking-believable interview by Jameis!! Just shows part of the reason why he’s SPECIAL!”

After the stars comments, fans criticized them for loosely using the word role model.

“Easy on the role model title.”

“Well @utahpigbus when you’re @ReggieBush morals and values are pretty low to begin with. #neversaidsorry.”

“Rape charges??”

On December 5, Florida state attorney, Willie Meggs announced that the Heisman front-runner would not be charged with sexual assault. Winston had been under investigation in a sexual assault case from Dec. 7, 2012 when a woman accused the football player of raping her at an off-campus apartment.

Sound off: Would you call Jameis Winston a role model?

    In my opinion, Jameis Winston is definitely NO role model for anyone to look up to for any reason. I don’t care who you are, if you’ve been accused of rape, and refuse to be interviewed by police, with so much evidence against you, then nobody should look up to you. He wasn’t innocent of anything, he was just let go. If I was suspected of rape, I would want to clear myself completely. He just already knew he’d get away with whatever he did because he knew he’d be protected because of who he perceives that he is. Judging by the extensive “interview” he gave after the championship game last night, I’d say he thinks big of himself. And he has the nerve to speak of God—–what a crock and a small boy (not a man) of a person!~

      So much evidence? There was basically NO evidence besides the words of a cleat chasing liar. Rape kit and blood tests confirm this. Have you ever stopped to think that maybe, just maybe, its not some huge scandal coverup and that the QB (who can get any girl he wants, consensually), didn’t do it? An accusation and everyone assumed guilt.

    This young man won the highest award for an individual offensive player in college football, led his team to one of the greatest comeback victories in BCS national championship history, had his name dragged through the mud with a false allegation of rape by a scorned girlfriend-on-the-side, and was able to prove his innocence, all as a freshman.

    Most grown men don’t overcome obstacles this great, or achieve on this level after trying for their whole lives. And Jameis isn’t even 21 yet.

    Absolutely a role model.
