Deshaun Watson ruling ignites social media, reaction pours in as quarterback faces six-game suspension

Aug 1, 2022

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson was reportedly handed a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after more than a dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct, prompting fierce backlash on social media over what is being perceived as a lenient ruling.

Former federal judge Sue L. Robinson issued a 15-page conclusion that found Watson violated the policy, but there was not enough evidence to justify an indefinite suspension, ESPN reported.

The NFLPA released a statement Sunday night in anticipation of the ruling that it would stand by Robinson’s decision and urged the NFL to "do the same."
