Reggie Bush ‘Harshly’ Disciplines His One-Year-Old
Of all the people who stuck their penis into Kim Kardashian and survived, Reggie Bush managed to walk away relatively unscathed if not justifiably credited for having as much sex with Kim as he could while appearing on her show as little as possible. The man set goals, and he accomplished him. But that was before I heard him defend Adrian Peterson yesterday and boast about disciplining a one-year-old little girl which is all exactly as bad as it sounds. CBS New York reports:
The Detroit Lions running back, appearing Tuesday on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show, said Peterson should be allowed to play football despite being indicted on charges of child abuse for hitting his 4-year-old son with a tree branch, causing cuts to the child’s legs.
“I was punished the same way,” Bush said. “And I know a lot of my friends and a lot of the guys I played with, they were punished the same way, too.”
The 29-year-old said he’d use his “best judgment” when it comes to punishing his daughter, Briseis. But he opened himself up for criticism by admitting he will come down hard on the toddler.
“I have a 1-year-old daughter, and I discipline her,” he said. “I definitely will try to — will obviously not leave bruises or anything like that on her. But I definitely will discipline her harshly depending on what the situation is.”
Oh, wow, goddammit. That was a grown man bragging about whooping an infant. At least he didn’t say he’d use a switch except you know what’s about to happen, don’t you?
Bush was asked point-blank whether he’d consider using a “switch” on his child: “I would possibly consider it, depending on what she did.”
Jesus Christ. What kind of “harsh discipline” does a one-year-old need – And God forbid, getting. – outside of gently picking her up, removing her from the problem and going, “No, no, no,” which is literally all you can feasibly do because who the hell hits a baby? One-year-olds barely even remember what happened five seconds ago, so it’s not like you’re teaching them anything. You could turn into a fucking dragon, and the next thought in their head will be, “Holy shit, does this spoon have Elmo on it?!” But before it seems like I’m attacking “black parenting” which, again, is a horseshit concept because lazy, violent parenting (Great read btw) isn’t confined to skin color. And to drive that point home, here’s Sean Hannity defending Adrian Peterson because his old man used to punch him in the face and hit him with a belt and he turned out just fine. So there you go, if you beat your kids, they’ll end up like Sean Hannity. And if for some reason that’s awesome to you, if you beat your kids, they’ll end up like me. There, I’ve covered all the bases.
