Adrian Peterson has a supporter for his child abuse scandal.
Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush voiced his opinion on the Adrian Peterson child abuse scandal defending Peterson saying “he got those type of harsh punishments when he was little.” He also stated that he would consider that type of punishment to his one year old daughter if the situation arose. That statement caused a bit of controversy.
Peterson was indicted on child abuse charges after beating his son with a tree branch switch, leaving bruises and cuts. Reportedly, he abused another one of his children. The Minnesota Vikings earlier today decided to ban Peterson from all football related activities until the trial is done. Peterson also had his endorsement contracts terminated by Nike and Castrol Oil.
There is no word if Peterson will play again this season or Bush will be fined for his statement.
