The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, who was staying at the Marriott Renaissance Phoenix Hotel & Spa to cover Super Bowl LVII for the NFL Network when the alleged encounter took place, held a press conference in Dallas with his lawyers during which they shared the security video. He’s been accused of asking the woman if she “knew anything about having a ‘big Black man inside of [her].’” “I don’t speak like that. I’ve never spoken like that,” Irvin told the reporters assembled before him. “I totally deny saying that.”

It alleges Irvin made the woman uncomfortable by touching her arm, and that the two other hotel employees noticed a “look of concern” on her face. Before the woman left, Irvin told her he’d come back and find her when she wasn’t working, according to the Marriott filing.

“She bad, She bad, I want to hit that,” Irvin said, slapping himself in the face and saying to himself, “Keep it together, Mike,” according to one of the woman’s colleagues cited in the filing.

Thx. I re-skimmed the article. Wondered whether it was this incident or prior, cause I didn't see that the first time.

He's an idiot.

He touched her twice and she tried to put her arms behind her back and she stepped back to create distance. Two of her colleagues said she looked uncomfortable.

I bet those two colleagues of hers were also the ones who told her that she interacted with Michael Irvin, a very rich black man and then they proceeded to collude to make up some allegations to extort some money.

Not defending Michael Irvin, but I highly doubt it went down the way she said it did. Looked to me like Irvin was flirting with her, she denied his advanced, he apologized and they shook hands.
