On Wednesday morning two sponsors announced that they were either suspending or ending their relationships with Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Watson has been accused of inappropriate behavior by 22 women, all of whom work in the wellness industry in some capacity.
This week, a series of disturbing text messages were revealed to the public – each of which continues to paint a dark picture.
It is likely that these text messages to some degree contributed to the decision by Watson’s corporate sponsors to cut ties.
The texts speak for themselves:
All the messages are publicly available online.

This situation just continues to get worse and worse for Watson. Earlier this week, the 22nd woman to file a complaint against him got extremely graphic regarding his alleged requests. And while there are several known contradictions and very shady practices that undermine some of the case against Watson, there is still a mountain of apparent evidence pointing in the other direction.
One way or another, this matter will be resolved sooner or later. And when it does, hopefully the wronged parties receive the justice they deserve.
