Forne mästaren anklagas för övergrepp



B.J. Penn har det senaste dygnet hamnat i rejält blåsväder då en före detta anställd ha gått ut med anklagelser om att Penn har förgripit sig på hans flickvän och försökt ta av hennes kläder. En polisutredning kommer påbörjas för att utreda händelsen.

Det här postade Pedro Alex Carrasco på Twitter:

Carrasco fick dessutom stöd från av Cynthia Vance, som varit med och filmat för Penn.

Vance förtydligade sedan att hon inte var på plats när det skulle ha skett, i ett meddelande på sidan Reddit.

My initial tweet blew up everywhere only after I realized what I had tweeted is unclear and caused mass confusion. Can’t go back on the internets! I just want to clarify that I can’t speak on what exactly went down with the sexual assault. Whatever Pedro is tweeting in that regard, is on him and his girlfriend, the one who got assaulted to clarify and speak up about if they are pressing charges. Pedro tweeted that only his girlfriend and BJ were present at the time of the alleged sexual assault but I guess nobody is paying attention to that. Pedro and I were left in Waipio Valley in a dead-zone overnight when this allegedly took place and we only learned of everything once we were able to get out.

I apologize with what I had initially tweeted. I thought it was clear that only Pedro’s girlfriend and BJ were present at the time of the assault. I was only stating that I support and believe her.

But I was staying with them for nearly a week around the time this happened. And I know what happened to me and what went down around me. It was extremely chaotic and one of the worst work experiences I’ve ever had. A lot of terrible things happened that week and I put myself in a dangerous situation. The whole shoot fell apart. I asked for the first ticket out of there and the show was cancelled.

I 100% believe Pedro’s girlfriend, support them and wish them all the best in their pursuit for justice. That’s it. They have a tough road ahead of them considering they have to press charges on the Big Island. Sexual assault is no joke and it’s disheartening to see so many people make light of it.

Blah. Shit is fucked and I’m not out to make a name for myself or cause some TMZ stir. Fuck that. I’m just here to offer my support because these are good people who’ve had a terrible thing happen to them. Nobody deserves that. NOBODY. And it makes me sick to my stomach to have learned of all of it and more, considering I’m from Hawaii and BJ is regarded as a hero there. The real heroes of MMA in Hawai’i are the current generation: Holloway, Pa’aluhi, Medeiros, Curran, Ostovich.

Penn hävdar sig vara oskyldig, men hans comeback kommer nu att flyttas fram eftersom UFC beslutat att vänta tills händelsen har utretts.
