People on social media can be quite commical, even when something serious is going on.
Deshaun Watson is widely expected to be suspended for at least part of the 2022 NFL season while facing 24 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault or misconduct. The QB has yet to resolve any of the now-24 lawsuits accusing him of sexual abuse during private massage therapy sessions.
Because of what we continue to find out, Watson has become an easy target for fans to make jokes. Such was the case when hip hop legend Diddy posted a video of himself getting a tandem massage outside.
The post with Diddy is real.
Watson commenting on the post, however, was fake. But it did not stop one dude from turning it into a viral joke.
Here’s how social media reacted to it:
Watson’s record five-year, $230 million deal with the Browns, signed as part of his trade from Houston, includes typical team protections that enable Cleveland to void the contract in the event of conduct detrimental to the club, per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.
However, Coach Kevin Stefanski and general manager Andrew Berry have publicly defended the QB’s character, pointing to their own investigation of his situation.
Cabot reports that it’s “almost a foregone conclusion that Watson will be suspended, either for a specific number of games, or indefinitely, in which case he’d have to miss the entire 2022 season and apply for reinstatement afterward.”
