The Big Lead is reporting that the Washington Redskins forced Scot McCloughen’s wife to apologize for her lewd tweets towards ESPN NFL reporter Dianna Marie Russini as she accused of her of giving away sexual benefits in order to get inside information on the Redskins.
Below was Jessica McCloughan’s apology. As you can see it was clearly written by someone else. Likely the Redskins.
“I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account,” Jessica McCloughan said in a statement to PFT, which was issued by the franchise. “The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the Redskins organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.”
As you can see in the tweet below, Jessica had tweeted Russini before and accused her of being a “side chick.”
Radar Online caught up with a family member of Jessica McCloughan’s that claims to be her sister-in-law.
“Shannon Rutherford, Jessica’s sister-in-law, told Radar that she knew about Jessica’s belief that her husband was cheating on her with the reporter, confirming that she has been aware ‘for a few weeks’ about the ‘side chick’ prior to the Twitter scandal.”
Rutherford also claims that the Redskins did pressure Jessica to apologize.
