Florida State Ups Star's Suspension to Full Game

September 22, 2014

Florida State University, which has been widely criticized for its handling of sexual assault allegations against Jameis Winston, has upped its punishment of Winston for standing on a table and shouting a vulgar and sexist phrase, The Tallahassee Democrat reported. The university originally announced that Winston would sit out the first half of a football game against Clemson University, a punishment that many viewed as a slap on the wrist. Late Friday night, the university announced Winston would sit out the full game. Those offended by explicit language may wish to stop reading here. Winston reportedly stood on a table and shouted: "Fuck her right in the pussy." The saying is associated with an Internet meme based on a fake viral video -- a prank of sorts where passersby say the phrase during live news broadcasts.
