CBS- Amid a report that the woman who accused college football star Jameis Winston of raping her tried to extort Winston for $7 million, a lawyer for the accuser is firing back, calling the extortion claim "dishonest and distorted."
So was Winston the victim of attempted extortion, or did his lawyer try to pay off the accuser? Does the accuser like to fuck football players, or would she never fuck a 'black boy'? For a very serious matter, the mudslinging that has ensued in this case is absolute hilarity. Just grown ass, highly paid lawyers blatantly talking shit to each other through media sources. Isn't this supposed to be some type of mature process? How am I supposed to take this seriously? It sounds like a middle school mock trial with no teachers present. Did these two used to date? That's the only explanation for ignoring all professional norms and going right for the jugular.
I got to side with Winston on this though. This chick was rocking shorts covered in 50 shades of semen from like 48 different guys. She doesn't sleep with 'black boys' (that statement is straight front the 'my father is an aspiring plantation owner' playbook), yet had a black boyfriend at the time. I trust neither lawyer obviously, but I trust Winston more than this chick. Not because Winston seems like a good person. Rather, I think Jameis is far too stupid to get away with rape. If he actually raped that girl the investigation would have found him guilty in like .5 seconds. He probably would have clubbed her over the head and left semen fingerprints on her back.
I mean, come on. Obviously rape is far too prevalent at college campuses, but I doubt one of the most highly touted recruits in Florida State history had any problem getting laid. That $7 million figure that is being thrown around seems like a ridiculous money grab. Not to mention, the girls lawyer basically responded by saying 'no way, you tried to pay us!'. That's the 'no, you started it!' of legal negotiations. Honestly, I was hoping this case would just go away. However, if they are going to keep slandering each other like high school girls then I will be hanging on every word. Serious matter or not, this back and forth has been ridiculously funny.
