More Horrific Evidence Of How Jonathan Martin Was Bullied
We already know of a voicemail where Richie Incognito left a racist message calling Martin a “half-nigger.” Now Martin’s lawyer, David Cornwell, says there is more ugly evidence.
According to Cornwell, a teammate once said this to Martin:
“We are going to run train on your sister. … She loves me. I am going to f*** her without a condom and c** in her c***.”
Cornwell doesn’t specify which teammate delivered the alleged quote. He also doesn’t specify whether it’s a voicemail, text, or something said in person.
“The issue is Jonathan’s treatment by his teammates. Jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying. Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute.”
