Is Antonio Brown being targeted for character assassination ?
Is Antonio Brown being targeted for character assassination? The summer is winding down and fall football season gets in full swing for many across the nation. I’m sure most are aware of the complexity of the Antonio Brown saga and have grown tired of hearing about the latest antics with the NFL superstar. We know about the feet issue and the helmet standoff and even the Mayock confrontation. The confrontation sparked the engine for his release from the Raiders. The latest question is Antonio Brown being targeted?
The latest allegations are far more complicated and serious to say the least. Antonio Brown has now been accused of rape by his former trainer Britney Taylor according to sources at ESPN.
The trainer is not pressing charges but did file suit against the star in a Florida courtroom on 9/10/2019. The trainer says that Brown assaulted her on 3 separate occasions and describes the events in great detail.
In one incident she claims he held her down as she fought back and yelled for Brown to stop. On a separate date she accuses Brown of inappropriate masturbation and ejaculation on her back. Taylor even claims she has text messages and emails from Brown apologizing.
Brown and his attorney are vehemently denying the allegations and are working to clear his name and seek any restitution that damage from the allegations may cause. Brown says that the two had a mutual relationship and that he never has or would assault Ms.Taylor..
Will Antonio Brown be given a chance to prove his innocence?
Sexual assault is not to be taken lightly and should always be throughly investigated and treated with high priority. Many will argue that the timing of the allegations are very convenient considering that the Brown media circus was winding down and it appeared that the star completely thumped the NFL system and was rewarded despite his odd behavior.
The history of black men especially black athletes being accused of rape is very commonplace. The allegations against Brown were never filed as a criminal charge and only seek restitution via lawsuit.
I think we all know how serious these allegations are and should wait to see how this plays out over time. I myself would pray that Mr.Brown is telling the truth. If Ms.Taylor was truly violated I pray that she finds healing and is able to have peace of mind in the future. I will keep a watchful eye on this story with updates and hope to answer is Antonio Brown being targeted for character assassination?
