On Tuesday, Robert Griffin III was trending on social media after he announced a forthcoming book in the summer of 2022.
“I’m so excited to announce that I wrote a book and it’s coming out in August 2022, titled ‘Surviving Washington.’ Now every experience I’ve ever had has made me a better husband, a better father and a better player. But I want you to take this journey with me, as I walk you through one of the most dysfunctional franchises in all of sports.
I’m going to tell you the truth about what happened in that playoff game in 2012 against Seattle. I’m going to detail the medical mismanagement that I received during my time in Washington. I’m going to open your eyes to the sexual harassment that permeated the walls of that building and give you a deep dive into a power struggle between one of the most powerful coaches in all of sports and an owner that many of you want gone.”
Griffin was blasted on social media for waiting to release a book talking about the sexual harassment he saw instead of coming out with it now. His wife would soon jump to Twitter and clear all that up.
“Let’s clear up a misconception about ‘Surviving Washington,’ Grete said. “In the book, Robert is not talking about other peoples experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. He is talking about his OWN experience with sexual harassment in Washington.”
Griffin III also responded as well.
“Sexual harassment victims should share their stories when they are ready not when you want them to,” he said. “The book is not about other people’s experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. It’s about my experience with sexual harassment in Washington. Hopefully you will listen.”
Griffin has been reluctant to speak about his time in Washington until now, so this book will certainly have everybody’s attention.
