Deshaun Watson is currently involved in a civil suit with 22 accusers. One accuser, in particular, has faced threats.

The accuser, Lauren Baxley, wrote a piece on The Daily Beast about the alleged abuse she has endured since Watson was not charged with a crime.

“I wrestle with feeling it would be easier to not exist. Many survivors share these feelings, and some of Watson’s fans have expressed that they would like for us to be raped, imprisoned, or killed.”

“More than that, the choice to not indict Watson on our testimonies — that were deemed ‘highly credible’ by prosecutors and the detectives who worked our criminal cases — opened a floodgate of abuse, slander, and libel toward us on the internet,” Baxley said.
