Warren Sapp says his gifts of vibrators to co-workers weren’t about sex

The sexual harassment lawsuit of former NFL Network employee Jami Cantor that led to the suspension of NFLN commentators Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor and Heath Evans and ESPN analysts Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis (and led to Bill Simmons Media Group President Eric Weinberger placed on indefinite leave) also contains allegations against former NFLN analyst Warren Sapp, who was fired from the network in February 2015 after being arrested for assault and soliciting a prostitute at the Super Bowl.

Here is what he said about Sapp:

…entered the washroom while the plaintiff was preparing clothes and urinated in front of her. The applicant yelled at him to get out, but Mr. Sapp laughed and said to the applicant, “Sorry mom, but your office shouldn’t be our shit.” The plaintiff complained to the NFL, but nothing was done until the plaintiff told the NFL she would be working in the hallway. Mr. Sapp also gave the plaintiff sex toys as Christmas gifts three years in a row, showed the plaintiff nude photos of numerous women he claimed to have slept with, and openly discussed his sex life in front of the plaintiff and other NFL employees, including supervisors. .

On Wednesday, Sapp took to both Twitter and Miami Fox Sports Radio affiliate 940 WINZ to try to defend himself. This segment is not yet published in its entirety on their websitebut Greg Auman from Tampa Bay Weather Appearance of Sapp live-tweeted:

Sapp then engaged with others on Twitter by tweeting pictures of the sex toys in question:

It’s a pretty unusual defense. Sapp is currently off the media and doesn’t seem very likely to get another media gig at this point, but his actions here seem unlikely to help that.
