Kevin Hart recently lampooned the now No. 1 ranked Florida State Seminoles football team, particularly Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston.
“You need to stop doing stupid shit,” several media outlets reported Hart admonished Winston in a video that has since been removed from Instagram. Reportedly, Winston didn’t look to be too thrilled by the advice, but clearly even he has to know from where it stems.
Besides publicly fending off sexual assault allegations, since hoisting his Heisman, the 20-year-old Winston has faced allegations of stealing soda from a neighborhood Burger King and charges of stealing crab legs from a Tallhassee Publix store. In the latter case, Winston was ultimately sentenced to serve 20 hours of community service and suspended from competing on the FSU baseball team until the entire penalty was served.
More recently, Winston was suspended for the first half of the Seminoles eventual 23-17 come-from-behind overtime win over Clemson. Several students told the media that Winston umped on the table of a cafeteria lunchroom and shouted several vulgar expletives leading to is expulsion.
More recently, school officials have announced Winston will face a disciplinary hearing stemming from the 2012 rape allegations he faced that could ultimately lead to his expulsion from the university. In December of 2013, Florida State attorney genera Willie Meggs announced that Winston would not be criminally charged in the probe.
“As prosecutors, we only bring charges for cases where the evidence will result in a likely conviction at trial,” said Meggs. “In this case, the evidence does not show that.”
Through it all, Winston and the Seminoles are striving to become one of the few back-to-back national championship teams in history. After knocking off state-rival Miami 30-26 in their last game, the Noles again rose to the top of the rankings.
