NFL Hall of Famer and former NFL Network broadcaster Warren Sapp sent women sex toys for Christmas but he still doesn’t know why he has been accused of sexual harassment.
“I’m still trying to figure out where’s the sexual harassment?” Sapp said on WINZ-AM, a Miami radio station.
Sapp was among several people named in a lawsuit by former NFL Network stylist Jami Cantor.
Sapp was fired by NFL Network in 2015 after being arrested for soliciting a prostitute.
Corroborating the details
In denying that his actions constituted sexual harassment, Sapp verified some of the details in the lawsuit.
For example, he admitted to giving sex toys as a gift.
“We were sitting there around Christmas time and everybody brought a Christmas gift, a little holiday joy for everybody,” Sapp said. “So, my man had made a little novelty thing that looked like mascara, eyeliner and different things. Little toys for ladies that move around a bit. I showed them pictures and (the makeup artists) said bring me some, so I brought them some for the makeup ladies.”
He also confirmed that there was some sort of interaction in a restroom, but says it was just because he was in a hurry to use the restroom during a commercial break.
“I did walk in the bathroom, but I did not urinate in front of her,” Sapp said. I didn’t pee in front of my wife and I was married to her for nine years. It’s just not something you (do). What is that about? It’s not cute. It’s not sexual. It’s not something you want to see. Last time I checked, if you ate some asparagus, it might stink.”
He doesn’t get it
Sapp doesn’t dispute the basic facts of the allegations against him, but he does seem to disagree with the definition of sexual harassment.
It doesn’t sound like any remorseful apology will be coming from him.
“Where is the harassment at?” Sapp asked. “I’m the notorious one. I’m always the bad guy. That’s why I’m in here today.
“Ain’t no #MeToo, nothing. No sexual harassment. You are not going to put that on me.”
