Ezekiel Elliott Claims The Woman He Allegedly Beat Is Racist
Ezekiel Elliott has a new excuse for why he got a six game suspension from the NFL.
The Dallas Cowboys superstar is claiming his accuser, Tiffany Thompson, is a racist, who told him the police would believe her because Tiffany Thompson is a white woman, according to The Star-Telegram.
The report states in part:
▪After being told Elliott didn’t want her at his house on July 21 and he didn’t want her coming out with him, Thompson responded with: “Ok this is what you want? Ok then, I’m going to ruin your life. You will see. If I was you, I wouldn’t go out tonight.”
▪ After being told she couldn’t come Elliott’s 21st birthday party, Thompson told him “that’s worst decision you made in your life. I’m going to ruin you life now.”
▪ The report also details a text message in which Thompson told Elliott: “You better be smart. And not be a dumb man. B—-, keep (messing) with the wrong, b—-.”
▪ After not being allowed into the after party, Thompson was heard yelling and screaming that “your career is over” and then proceeded to call the police.
▪ Elliott is also “100 percent certain” that Thompson told him on July 22, “You are a black male athlete. I’m a white girl. They are not going to believe you.”
Police declined to press charges over the incident, but the NFL still found enough evidence that Elliott had committed violent acts to suspend him for six games.
This is a bad situation for the Cowboys, Elliott and the NFL. The league has had plenty of problems with domestic violence, and they can’t make it appear that the league’s brass is taking it easy on a man suspected of beating a woman.
Elliott better have lots of proof to make the claim Thompson is a racist, who told him the police wouldn’t believe him because Elliott is a black man. That is an incredible claim to make without plenty of evidence to back it up. The claim could also backfire big time for the former Ohio State running back if he’s proven to be lying.
What a horrible situation all the way around. This seems like it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
