According to Deadspin.com, the video that blew up last night with Laremy Tunsil smoking weed in a gas mask through a bong, was a ploy to make money for themselves. According to Deadspin, someone was trying to sell it for weeks before hand.
This is from Deadspin.com, and it is sad. Someone was out to make a quick buck at another persons expense.
Someone was out to get Tunsil, and succeeded. We don’t know who that someone is. But we know someone’s been trying to sell that video for weeks.
On April 12 we received an email in our tips inbox:
40 sec video of Projected top 5 pick in the 2016 NFL draft smoking drugs (crack or weed) from gas mask. Looking to sell.
The email address is apparently a throwaway, but it arrived under the name “Laremy Tunsil.” Somewhat tickled by the caginess of the text when the ostensible subject was right there in the “from” column, we replied, half-facetiously:
Is it Laremy Tunsil?
The emailer promptly replied.
Does not sound like too good of a friend. The crazy thing is whoever posted it had to be close to Laremy no?
