Derrick Rose and his crew of “associates” were just cleared in the civil case accusing them of sexual assault.
The jury was made up of six women and two men who took a mere three hours and 45 minutes to come back with the verdict. The accuser was seeking $21.5 million in damages.
Here’s a question though: Do you think if Rose could go back in time and pay $21 million for this case to never become public, he would? The price tag is a little steep, so I’m guessing he wouldn’t, but despite him not being charged criminally and winning the lawsuit against him, he will sure as hell move forward with a damaged reputation.
More (or equally as) disturbing, Rose often didn’t seem to understand the concept of consent, assuming that an ongoing sexual relationship entitled him to sex anytime he wanted without having to re-acquire consent.
A certain set of fans, especially women, but a large number of men too, will never see Derrick Rose the same way again.
