Report: Dolphins Knew Incognito Harassed, Mocked Ethnicity of Employee
The Miami Dolphins reportedly knew that embattled lineman Richie Incognito mocked the ethnicity of and harassed a Miami Dolphins staff member.
According to National Football Post:
According to two sources, suspended guard Richie Incognito and at least one other player mocked the ethnic background of a team staff member and made crude jokes about the staff member’s wife.
According to one of the sources, Incognito would sometimes dress in garb from the staff member’s culture and then make profane jokes about that culture. A second source said that at least one other player joined in on the antics, creating an extremely uncomfortable environment for the staff member.
The outlet reports Incognito allegedly "said on a number of occasions that the staff member’s wife had sexual relationships with several members of the team" and "the behavior was done in view of other team staff members and was allowed to go on without being curtailed by team management or front-office staff":
That failure to monitor the situation could create further legal problems for Dolphins management, which will be hard-pressed to claim it was unaware of the workplace environment. The NFL is currently investigating the matter. Attorney Ted Wells has been appointed to conduct the inquiry.
