Brett Favre has filed a defamation lawsuit against Mississippi State Auditor Shad White and two former NFL Players Shannon Sharpe and Pat McAfee.
Favre accuses White, Sharpe, and McAfee of carrying out an outrageous media campaign falsely accusing Favre of stealing from poor people in Mississippi. The retired NFL star claims the accusations are a brazen attempt to leverage media attention for White to further his own political career and attack Favre’s “good name.”
“Shannon Sharpe and Pat McAfee tried to further their careers by making baseless defamatory allegations against Brett Favre,” a spokesperson for the legendary quarterback told the Daily Mail.
Not everybody is taking his lawsuit seriously.
Media personality and former NFL kicker Pat McAfee reacted to the report by posting the “I Plead the Fif” GIF from Chappelle’s Show.
According to the lawsuit, McAfee accused Favre of “stealing from the poor people of Mississippi.”
Mississippi is currently suing Favre in civil court to recoup funds it says were wrongly spent. Favre filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him by the Department of Human Services in November 2022.
Favre claims he has done nothing wrong. It should be noted that he is not facing any criminal charges.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
