Pat McAfee is renowned as a highly talented and imaginative figure in the WWE. He has demonstrated his exceptional abilities as both a wrestler and an accomplished commentator on Friday Night SmackDown. McAfee was gone for quite a while and finally returned during the Royal Rumble. However, he has bigger things to worry about as Brett Favre recently sued him for defamation. That being said, it seems McAfee is looking forward to seeing Favre in court.
Green Bay Packers quarterback legend Brett Favre has initiated a lawsuit against Pat McAfee and Shannon Sharpe for their alleged defamatory statements concerning the Mississippi welfare fraud case in regard to Ted DiBiase and his family.
The lawsuit alleges that McAfee referred to Favre as a “thief” who was “appropriating funds intended for the disadvantaged in Mississippi.” Favre returned the $1.1 million in question, however, declined to repay the requested $228,000 in interest. He maintained his lack of knowledge regarding the origin of the funds he received. Following Favre’s repayment, White sought an additional $5 million, alleging that Favre received $5 million from the welfare fund to construct a volleyball arena at the University of Southern Mississippi, Favre’s alma mater.
While speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, McAfee addressed the lawsuit. He made a toast with his crew before continuing. In the end, the former punter made it clear that he will see Favre in court.
“I’m getting sued by Brett Farve. Yup, we made it, boys. I’m getting sued alongside Shannon Sharpe and an auditor by Missipi by Brett f**king Favre. Brett Favre is suing me in a defamation lawsuit, saying I defamed his name to try to earn a profit. With this, I believe, comes discovery and depositions and all these other things.
So I would like to let the New York lawyers who wrote me two letters before this thing got announced,” McAfee stated before noting what they said in the letter, which was them wanting him to remove any and all mention of Favre from the archives of his radio show, Twitter and YouTube library. He called it a warning shot.
“So I looked at that and said, ‘That’s hilarious.’ Of course, we’re not doing that. Put that down, move on with my life.”
According to the lawsuit, McAfee was given a deadline of 8:30 PM Eastern on Wednesday to issue a public apology to Favre and remove all content related to the former QB. However, McAfee stated that he was engaged in a game of pickleball and missed the deadline. As a result, he is now facing legal action.
“I would like to let everyone know the quotes that were in that lawsuit were certainly accurate, but there’s one word that I believe that was said often on this program, which was allegedly. Our job is to report the news. At the time, it was allegedly going on down in Mississippi with Brett Farve, the man suing me for money.”
We had to cover that situation, and we certainly said allegedly and a lot of people were wondering how my lawyers were going to handle this, you know it, I ain’t got em, so let’s ride this f**ker. I’m excited. I’ll see you in court, pal.”
We will have to wait and see how the case will proceed in court. Stay tuned to Thirsty For News as we bring you similar stories.
