Deshaun Watson’s attorney Rusty Hardin is firing back at the mounting allegations of sexual misconduct against the Houston Texans star quarterback.

There are currently 14 lawsuits that have been filed against Watson and reports that 10 or more additional lawsuits could be coming, but Hardin is not a fan of how the lawsuits are being handled in the public light.

Hardin blasted the “circus-like atmosphere” that has been created by sharing the lawsuits and information on social media.

Hardin also notes that Watson’s legal team has received “numerous unsolicited comments in the past week from many licensed massage therapists who have worked with Deshaun in recent years.”

“I want to emphasize at the outset that we and Deshaun recognize that sexual assault and harassment are not only unlawful but morally wrong,” Hardin said in a statement. “It takes courage for women to come forward to report being mistreated, particularly when they attach their names to a lawsuit. We do not take these allegations lightly. However, fairness to the accused is equally as important.
