Deshaun Watson’s victims have had enough, they just called out the NFL investigators for patronizing them

Deshaun Watson Texans Sexual predator?
Two of Deshaun Watson’s sexual assault victims are upset with NFL investigators and feel the NFL is patronizing them for coming forward.

Today in an article released by Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated, several of the women accusing Deshaun Watson are looking for answers.

Ashley Solis the first woman to file a law suit and Lauren Baxley another victim sat down with Jenny Vrentas about the NFL’s investigators and they were not happy with how they were treated by the NFL investigators Lisa Friel and Jennifer Gaffney. According to the article, this is what they said:


“This woman asked me what I was wearing, which honestly really pissed me off,” Solis told Sports Illustrated in what was her first interview with a media outlet. “She explained that that’s something that she has to ask—which I don’t believe at all. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be wearing that would suggest that I don’t want you to put your penis on my hand. Do I need to wear a turtleneck?”


“My forensic interview [with HPD] was very respectful and trauma-informed,” Baxley says. “They let me speak uninterrupted, whereas with Lisa Friel and the [other NFL investigator], they would cut me off, they would question things, they would circle back.” Baxley believes that they were “trying to trip me up. They didn’t, but they were really looking for the weaknesses that they thought they could exploit.”

It sounds like the NFL’s investigators were patronizing or victim-blaming, which is pretty gross. This could get pretty choppy between Watson and the NFL. The NFL may be forced to do something, because these interviews are not making the agency look very good.
