Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston made a comment that has most shaking their heads today talking to a group of kids at Melrose Elementary in St. Petersburg, FL on Wednesday.
The Bucs starting QB seemed to give a LOT of love to the boys in the audience, but the girls – not so much.
“All my young boys, stand up. The ladies, sit down,” Winston said, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? All my boys, tell me one time: I can do anything I put my mind to. Now a lot of boys aren’t supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I’m saying? One day y’all are going to have a very deep voice like this (in deep voice). One day, you’ll have a very, very deep voice.
“But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men (are) supposed to be strong. I want y’all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to. Scream it!”
So basically the 23-year-old is telling all the young ladies of the world to just watch the world go by, while telling the males to be strong and scream.
Obviously Winston was trying to make a point, but clearly he needs to choose his words a little better.
