Former Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch held his annual football camp this past week in Seattle.
The free-agent has done this every year for the past several summers. Until now, it’s been a festive environment to help children between the ages of 9-12 years old learn from the championship back.
According to TMZ Sports, Lynch got involved in a confrontation with moms at the camp, at one point demanding to speak with a man rather than the women on hand.
“At one point, we’re told 33-year-old Lynch tossed some of the kids out of a contact drill … saying, ‘Get the f*ck out.’ It’s unclear why Lynch booted the kids from the drill,” the report read. “Some of the kids began to cry — prompting at least one parent to intervene.”
There’s a video of the incident in question, which you can see here.
Lynch allegedly started hurling curse words at both the children and the parents. Some of the mothers decided to pull their children from the camp, at which point Lynch went up to the stands to confront a couple of them.
One of the mothers, Stephanie Siva, told TMZ Sports that the entire situation was “incredibly sexist.”
Lynch, 33, played the past two seasons for the Raiders after starring in Seattle for the previous five-plus years. The five-time Pro Bowler began his career as a member of the Buffalo Bills back in 2007.
Lynch left open the possibility of returning to the Raiders for their final season in his native Oakland, but Jon Gruden and Co. have not shown any real interest.
