Brett Favre is someone who has been criticized a lot over the last few months. Overall, this is due to allegations that he diverted Mississippi welfare funds away from their intended recipients. Reports suggest that Favre was in cahoots with the state of Mississippi as he was trying to get money to help build a facility for his daughter’s volleyball team. Favre’s daughter plays for the University of Southern Mississippi, and the school is under a ton of scrutiny right now. However, Favre has denied all wrongdoing and continues to proclaim his innocence.

Mississippi is one of the poorest states in America, which has ultimately led to outrage over the allegations. Numerous broadcasters have spoken at length about the accusations, including Shannon Sharpe. Moreover, people like Pat McAfee have also offered some commentary on the matter. For Favre, this is a situation that has cost him his reputation. As it stands, Favre’s alleged involvement in all of this is still being investigated.

Subsequently, Favre is now filing a defamation suit against three people. The first is Mississippi state Auditor Shad White. Furthermore, Favre is most notably going after Shannon Sharpe and Pat McAfee. He believes that they have slandered his name by calling him a “thief” who steals from the poor. At the time of writing this, it remains to be seen how much money he is seeking. Regardless, it is very clear that he is upset with how he is being characterized throughout this situation.

As it stands, both McAfee and Sharpe have yet to give a comment on this situation. Overall, this is a legal matter, and it will take some time before they give a full statement on it.
