Reggie Bush and LeBron James came under fire on Monday evening after praising Florida State’s quarter back, Jameis Winston.
After Florida State’s victory over Auburn in the BCS Championship game, Winston gave a post-game interview that LeBron and Reggie were clearly very fond of.
“Love listening to this dude Jameis Winston talk after games! Walks and talks like a true champion! A great role model for kids to look up to,” Bush wrote on Twitter.
LeBron also took to Twitter, writing: “UN-Freaking-believable interview by Jameis!! Just shows part of the reason why he’s SPECIAL!”
After the stars comments, fans criticized them for loosely using the word role model.
“Easy on the role model title.”
“Well @utahpigbus when you’re @ReggieBush morals and values are pretty low to begin with. #neversaidsorry.”
On December 5, Florida state attorney, Willie Meggs announced that the Heisman front-runner would not be charged with sexual assault. Winston had been under investigation in a sexual assault case from Dec. 7, 2012 when a woman accused the football player of raping her at an off-campus apartment.
Sound off: Would you call Jameis Winston a role model?
