ESPN Edited Their Online Piece On Ronda Rousey To Make It Look Like She Wasn't Sleeping With A Married Man
YardBarker- ESPN made a change to their excellent article about Ronda Rousey published last week that has raised some eyebrows regarding the reason.
Some astute readers on the internet noticed that a change was made concerning the timeline of Rousey’s relationship with boyfriend and fellow UFC fighter Travis Browne.
The original article noted that the relationship between Browne and Rousey began in April, months before Browne’s wife Jenna Renee Webb accused him of domestic violence. The edited version stated that they began dating in “early summer.”
Webb posted photos on Instagram in early July showing bruises she says were the result of Browne beating her. Browne denied the allegation, and his manager said Webb was just trying to get back at Browne for cheating on her. When Browne announced in October that he and Rousey were together, it confirmed that Rousey was the so-called “other woman.”
Rousey has faced a lot of scrutiny for being with Browne, especially from Webb, who blasted her for being with a “wife beater.”
Remember when you first started using the internet? What's the first thing your parents told you when they say you fucking around on AOL? That's right, it was some variation of "be careful what you say on there, because everything can come back to you". Now granted, by starting a blog a decade later and throwing a bunch of unfiltered, potentially offensive thoughts out there for all to read, I didn't exactly take their advice to heart, but luckily for me, no one gives a fuck about my life. That's not the case for Ronda Rousey. Especially the Ronda Rousey that has made a hobby out of publicly attacking Floyd Mayweather for his repeated acts of domestic violence. Yup, that's right, the same Ronda Rousey that, prior to her last fight, went on a worldwide self promotional tour to create a positive image of herself.
All that time and effort and she couldn't even get her facts straight when it came to telling her story to ESPN? Maybe Ronda should be fighting men, because indicting yourself of ethically questionable behavior by completely butchering a timeline is about as male as it gets. I'm not a big cheater, but who hasn't tried to fabricate their whereabouts from time to time? You know how many questions it takes to poke holes in my stories? One, because like most men, I am a terrible liar. Women might not be as good as men at mixed martial arts, but they are supposed to be far superior at forging the truth.
Sorry, Ronda's not home right now. She's walking in a spiderweb. No need to leave a message, because she'll probably be too busy caught up in her entanglement of lies to call you back. Hey, I'm not even mad at Rousey for hypocritically dating an alleged domestic abuser, nor am I upset with her for fucking a married dude. I am simply appalled that she was so careless in keeping it close to the vest. It's not about the lie, it's more about the coverup, and she protected this one about as well as she protected her face against Holly Holm. So much work to cultivate a likable illusion of herself and then, when it was in dire need of protection, she just carelessly walked away from it like Bowe Bergdahl. Much like people, the internet doesn't forget Ronda. As rough as that draft was it's still going to be the version that people remember most.
P.S. Hey Ronda, your boyfriend, WOOF.
