Former LSU and current Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth didn’t appreciate his butt being aired on national television.
The tackle was caught in the background with no clothes on during an NFL Network interview inside Cincinnati’s locker room with teammate Adam Jones. Whitworth told the Cincinnati Enquirer that he shouldn’t have to worry about getting dressed in front of strangers.
“This is my office space,” Whitworth told the Enquirer’s Paul Dehner Jr. “I shouldn’t have to change in it and be in front of people I don’t know or really don’t have any purpose for being near me other than the fact they are interviewing other people.”
Whitworth said he felt embarrassed for his family, particularly his daughter.
“For me personally and my wife, we’re fine, but I think of it as if my daughter, Sarah, (was) 16, and she had to go to high school and listen to all the crap that’s going on today in the media about me being naked on camera, whatever would happen to her to ridicule or mock her, that’s the way that I see it and as a father and a man, it’s wrong,” Whitworth said to Dehner.
Katherine Webb, the wife of former Alabama and current Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron, gave her opinion on the incident.
Whitworth played four years for the Tigers from 2002 to 2005 (Redshirted for the 2001 season). His 52 career games played set a school record, according to The Advocate.
