Women’s Rights Group Wants Sponsors To Cut Ties With Peyton Manning
20 years after then Tennessee QB Peyton Manning allegedly ‘teabagged’ or put his testicles on the head of a female trainer, the story is doing something it never got a chance to do when the public 1st found out, it went viral. Days after Manning won his 2nd Super Bowl, after the Cam Newton sour puss story had died down, New York Daily News sent the interwebz into a frenzy dropping an article Saturday morning about the ‘Teabagging’ incident.
UltraViolet is calling for Nationwide Insurance and Papa John’s Pizza to suspend their business relationships with the Denver Broncos quarterback after a lawsuit was filed this week against the University of Tennessee that named Manning as part of a culture of sexual harassment on campus.
“When institutions like the University of Tennessee tacitly condone violence against women by ignoring cases of sexual assault by student-athletes, it perpetuates a dangerous culture of violence that ultimately hurts women everywhere,” Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet said in a statement released on Tuesday.
“Nationwide Insurance and Papa John’s Pizza must show their customers that they will never stand for sexual violence — and suspend their relationships with Manning pending further investigation.”
Good luck with that ladies, Manning brings in a bunch of money. He’s not getting dropped by anybody especially for a 20-year old story.
UltraViolet is the same organization that also tried to get NFL Commssioner Roger Goodell to resign in the wake of the Ray Rice incident in 2014.
