The Deshaun Watson saga has to be the most high-profiled and unusual case regarding a top QB we have seen in quite some time. 22 allegations against the Houston Texans QB is one thing, but most of what we are hearing continues to play out on social media by one lawyer.
Tony Buzbee, who represents all of the victims so far against Watson, has either used Instagram or Facebook to fire about at the opposing counsel.
Buzbee was back at it again on Friday evening, some hours after Watson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, held a press conference to defend his client.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I respect attorney Rusty Hardin. He’s one of the best lawyers our great state has to offer. He’s a true legend. He is a colleague, and I consider him a friend. I hope he agrees. But today he conceded that his client gets two to three massages a week—that equates to more than a 150 massages yearly—outside the vast Texans organization that has trainers and massage therapists, etc.”
“Watson sought these women out, according to the admissions of Mr. Hardin, via social media, particularly Instagram. Most if not all of the different women Watson reached out to by direct message. I think we can all agree that is a bit strange.”
“But here is my problem: Mr. Hardin, in his press conference, also stated that, from his client’s perspective, some or more of these massage interactions with my clients, both licensed and unlicensed therapists, became sexual because they were “consensual.” NO.”
“I can tell you from my clients’ perspectives THESE INTERACTIONS WERE NOT CONSENSUAL. “No” means no, and trying to use massage sessions for something weird is just that— weird.”
