On Thursday, Sports Illustrated published yet another bombshell report about embattled New England Patriots wide receiver Anthony Brown, who was recently accused of rape by his former trainer. The SI article details a new sexual-misconduct allegation, in which Brown appeared nearly naked, with only a hand towel over his genitals, in front of an artist he'd commissioned to create a portrait of himself in his home. She ignored his advances and went right on painting, and the encounter "ended abruptly." After the report was published, Brown's lawyer tweeted that the receiver "denies that he ever engaged in such activities."
