Tampa Buccaneers player Jameis Winston just took us back a cool 100 years all thanks to these offensive comments he made about women.
The NFL player was speaking to a group of 4th and 5th graders at an elementary school in Tampa when he suggested “ladies” are supposed to be silent.
“But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? All my boys, tell me one time: I can do anything I put my mind to,” Winston said during what was supposed to be a motivational chat. “Now a lot of boys aren’t supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I’m saying? One day y’all are going to have a very deep voice like this (in deep voice). One day, you’ll have a very, very deep voice.”
That’s when he interjected, “But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men (are) supposed to be strong. I want y’all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to. Scream it!”
Winston later revealed to the Tampa Bay Times that he “used a poor word choice.”
“I was making an effort to interact with a young male in the audience who didn’t seem to be paying attention, and I didn’t want to single him out so I asked all the boys to stand up,” the athlete told the publication. “During my talk, I used a poor word choice that may have overshadowed that positive message for some.”
While Winston’s “poor” choice of words were unintentional, his actions are not what we would call shocking.
In 2015, a woman named Erica Kinsman filed a lawsuit against the former Florida State player for an alleged sexual assault in 2012. Just two months ago, they reached a settlement.
In Septener 2014, the athlete was suspended for half a game after allegedly yelling “F*ck her right in the p&ssy” on a table on campus.
