Have you noticed that outside of scattered chatter about the alleged attack on his girlfriend, no one is talking about Jonathan Majors anymore?
In the span of a month, Jonathan Majors went from Twitter Honey to Twitter’s Most Hated after news that he had been arrested and charged with assaulting his girlfriend. Details of the assault are sketchy, but it has been reported that strangulation may have been part of the attack.
As people discussed the situation, some twitter users came forward to make claims that Majors is a known abuser and has a history of being abusive not just to his partners but toward people he has worked with as well.
Following that, his attorney gave TMZ (of all places) screenshots of text messages that are allegedly between Majors and the victim, and those might have been the most damning and damaging thing of all because they give the appearance of a victim fawning in response to trauma. Ugh.
For NewsOne, I wrote about how all of this has led to Jonathan Majors being found guilty in the court of public opinion.
The actions of his attorney, Priya Chaudry, have not helped change the public’s perception of Majors or the incident in question. In fact, they have only intensified the heat of the “He’s guilty” fire.
The day after his arrest, Chaudry said in a statement, “Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim in an altercation with a woman he knows.”
She later added, “We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently.”
Chaudry claimed that evidence included video footage of the altercation, witness testimony and two written statements from the victim herself, “recanting” the allegations.
Chaudry explained that police are required to make an arrest in situations such as these but also said she expected the charges would be dropped soon.Jonathan Majors Has Already Been Found Guilty In The Court Of Public Opinion
