Best Sex Harassment Attorney: There is a real sexual harassment problem in this country that should be getting attention while everyone is focusing on instead of a sham complaint against the Cleveland Browns’ Johnny Manziel.
The breaking sexual harassment lawsuit news of the day is that new Cleveland Browns quarterback sensation, Johnny Manziel was on the receiving end of a sexual harassment complaint. It quickly became clear that the sex harassment lawsuit was a sham which was mailed to the Florida U.S. District Court for filing and contained a fictitious name for the plaintiff. The compliant contained such allegations sexual harassment against Manziel, who was just drafted 22 overall in the 2014 NFL draft, as:
- ON Christmas Eve, 2013, Johnny Manziel sent me a Instagram photo of himself naked to me Facebook with Manziel putting a hotdog bun between his penis, smiling, calling me “Ho, Ho, Ho”, then called me up and told me he wanted a threesome with Dr. Drew.
- During last year’s Nathan Hotdog Eating Contest, Defendant Manziel sent me a naked photo of him with a ruler next to his erect penis that measured 4½ inches, while holding up a sign “You know you want me, Samantha.”
- Defendant keeps asking me to strip for him at his boy, Lebron James‘ crip in Miami.
- Johnny Manziel refers to his penis as his Vienna Sausage and told me good things come from small packages.
- Johny Manziel said he Skyes with Judereon Clowney in South Carolina, and Clowney sent Manziel a Pic of his penis which was 9 inches, and Manziel showed it to me on Skype and asked me if I could handle that monster.
- Manziel told me he embraces the fact that he has a small penis and Manziel·said to me on the phone he watched kinky fetish small penis porn on Redtube after Taxas A & M Football games.
- Manzial sent me a homemade video of himself at Walt Disney World on “It’s a Small World” ride in the Magic Kingdom, and while the song is on, he puts the 6amera down unbuttons his pants, pulls his penis out and jingles his penis to the music.
Obviously, this was intended to be a joke by someone that who had trouble actually spelling or forming intelligible sentences. Most of the sports world, and because we are dealing Johnny Football, even beyond that, are acting incredulous that someone would abuse our court system to besmirch a beloved national icon. And, that is awful, terrible, deadful, etc. However, my biggest problem is that this makes a joke out of the really serious issue that is sexual harassment. Our sexual harassment lawyers regularly deal with women (and men) that truly have to deal with comments, sex solicitation, and harassment very similar to the allegations in the Manziel sexual harassment complaint. We have blogged about very real sexual harassment situations that women are subjected to:
- Women dealing with rape in the workplace;
- managers making deplorable sexual comments, asking employees for oral sex, and grabbing employees’ buttocks and genitals;
- being called a whore and being wrongfully accused of sleeping around the office;
- a boss demanding “play time” to get stoned with female employees and have sex with them in his “special room”;
- bosses sexually harassing teens at work; and
- drunk bosses at parties grouping and soliciting female works.
The Manziel sexual harassment complaint causes people to doubt the veracity of the very real claims that are brought employees. The allegations causes people to take these type of allegations more lightly. The outcry to the filing of this sham complaint should have been to recognize the very real problem of sexual harassment that women face in the workplace every day.
I would love for Johnny Cleveland to step to the microphone to address this situation and say something to the effect of: “Don’t cry for me. Sexual harassment is a very serious situation that affects millions of women each and every day that they go into work to earn a living and feed their families. What I have to handle to address these frivolous claims is nothing compared to what these working mothers, sisters, and daughters face. Sexual harassment is a very real problem that should not be made light of.” Boy, that would be great.
