Robert Griffin III Alleges Sexual Harassment On Washington Football Team

His upcoming book ‘Surviving Washington’ will shed light on the allegations.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III says he was sexually harrassed during his 2012-2014 tenure with the Washington Football Team. He details this experience in an upcoming tell-all book, Surviving Washington, according to PEOPLE magazine.

On November 30, Griffin, 31, announced the book would be released on August 9, 2022. He says his goal is to highlight one of the most dysfunctional franchises in all of sports.

“I’m going to open your eyes to the sexual harassment that permeated the walls of that building, and give you a deep dive into a power struggle between one of the most powerful coaches in all of sports and an owner that many of you want gone,” he said in a video post on Twitter.

Some social media critics questioned if his allegations were related to the Washington Post’s 2020 investigation, where more than a dozen women alleged sexual harassment and verbal abuse by the team’s former employees, PEOPLE writes.

On Wednesday (Dec. 1), Griffin stated on social media that the experiences were his own.

“Sexual harassment victims should share their stories when they are ready not when you want them to,” he clarified via Twitter. “he book is not about other people’s experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. It's about my experience with sexual harassment in Washington. Hopefully you will listen.”

In July, the Washington Football Team was fined $10 million after an investigation into a toxic workplace culture. “Bullying and intimidation frequently took place and many described the culture as one of fear, and numerous female employees reported having experienced sexual harassment and a general lack of respect in the workplace,” the statement read.
