Women’s Group Demands NY Giants Suspend Josh Brown Amidst New Evidence of Domestic Abuse


UltraViolet Says Roger Goodell Continues to Fail to Address Domestic Violence in the NFL, Says #GoodellMustGo


Yesterday, new evidence was brought to light in the case of New York Giants Placekicker Josh Brown and allegations of domestic abuse against his ex-wife, Molly Brown. Despite the mounting evidence against Brown, Giants Coach Ben McAdoo said, “We’re not going to turn our back on Josh,” and that “[they are] looking to get as much information as [they] can to make an informed decision.”


For now, the Giants have announced that Brown will not travel with to London for the game against the Los Angeles Rams.


As part of an investigation by the King County Sheriff’s Office, a journal entry by Brown was obtained, reading, “I have abused my wife.” On Wednesday, the Sheriff’s office released over 150 documents that show evidence of Brown’s physical and verbal abuse of his ex-wife on more than 20 occasions. The documents also include photos showing a large bruise on Molly Brown’s leg.


Nita Chaudhary, Co-founder of UltraViolet, issued the following statement:


“It is deeply disappointing that the Giants, the NFL and Roger Goodell continue to fail to address domestic violence within the League. Despite clear evidence that Josh Brown abused his ex-wife on numerous occasions, the league seems willing to turn a blind eye to this abuse sending the signal to survivors of domestic violence that the lives of their athletes are more important than the victims of their crimes.  This is unacceptable.


“The Giants should immediately suspend Josh Brown pending a full investigation into the allegations against him.  Anything less will prove what we have known now for some time: that the NFL will never address domestic violence against women as long as Roger Goodell remains its Commissioner.”


When allegations of domestic violence were initially made against Brown in 2015, the misdemeanor charge was dropped and he only sat out for a single football game with the Giants.
