By now, you’ve surely heard about Miami Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland asking WR Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute during pre-draft interviews. Bryant, now with the Dallas Cowboys, didn’t appreciate it one bit and apparently his mother didn’t either.
“No, he has not called,”‘ Angela Bryant told AOL Fanhouse. “I think he should have. Why wouldn’t you do that?”
Well, he was classless enough to ask the questions, maybe he’s classless enough to not apologize to the person who the comment was directed at.
“Yes, I am upset about it,” Angela Bryant said. “I am not pleased with it. I’ve heard how the question was supposed to have come about — that Dez supposedly said his father was a pimp — but I don’t believe that. I think the Dolphins have put that out there as their excuse. And I know if they keep after it like that, they will sound like a broken record. He was caught off guard by it. To ask that of any kid, that hurts.
“When they couldn’t find enough dirt on him, they went to that. It was almost like a scheme. They should never have put that kind of thing or question on him. Whatever reason they chose to do that, they are talking about my charges of 12 years ago and running with it. I’m not OK with it. But we are both going to be OK.”
Ireland already called Dez to apologize, so we don’t think it’s out of the question to think that she might eventually get a phone call. Especially now that this is out in the open.
