Warren Sapp tweets photos of sex toys in response to NFL Network harassment suit

NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp is among the several former NFL players named in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against NFL Network by a former employee.

Jami Cantor, who worked as a wardrobe stylist at the network, alleges multiple cases of inappropriate sexual behavior committed by executives and on-air talent that include unwanted touching, sexting and propositions.

Sapp stands accused of urinating in front of Cantor, talking openly about sexual experiences, showing her nude photos of women on his phone and giving her sex toys as Christmas gifts three years in a row.

Sapp went on a self-defense campaign Wednesday that included a radio interview and tweeting out photos of sex toys.


Ummm. OK, Warren. That’s an interesting defense strategy.

Sapp also sat for an interview on the “Andy Slater Show” in a further attempt to bolster his defense.

He told Slater that he did not give Cantor the sex toys he tweeted about, but gave them to three women who worked in makeup at NFL Network when they asked him to.

“No, nah,” Sapp told Slater when asked if he gave Cantor sex toys a gifts. “The sex toys are little vibrators. Little toys for ladies that move around a little bit.

“It’s a little discreet way to carry your little thing around for the ladies.”

He told Slater that if Cantor had one, she must have gotten it from one of the women working in makeup.

So, Sapp’s defense strategy against sexual harassment includes an account that he gave sex toys to three other women he worked with, just not the plaintiff.

Sapp also denied using the bathroom in front of Slater and gave his account of the incident.

He told Slater that while on commercial break for a morning show he rushed to use the bathroom and asked Cantor to leave when she was in the only bathroom on set because he had to get back on the air after the break. He said he believed she had left the bathroom when he asked her to.

“I ain’t pee in front of my wife, and I was married with her for nine years,” Sapp told Slater. “That’s just not something you do. What is that about?”

As for the allegations that he showed Cantor nude photos of women on his phone, Sapp explained that Cantor asked him about his model girlfriend, and when she did, he showed her pictures of her wearing bathing suits.

After going into detail on all of these incidents, Sapp asked Slater if he thought he was guilty of sexual harassment before giving his own conclusion.

“Ain’t no me too on sexual harassment,” Sapp said. “Are you kidding me? No way. Uh-uh, sir. No. You’re not going to put that one on me.

“I was raised better than that. I don’t doo-doo where I eat. I’m not a dog, and I’m not that stupid.”
