A man named Ricky Vasquez and a woman going by the name Honey both claim that Mike Pouncey and his brother Maurkice attacked them and beat them up at a local Miami club. These are just allegations but they definitely show proof on their social media accounts that something happened to them.
Vasquez took to Twitter around 5am to describe what he claims as the Pouncey brothers attacking him for being gay, then explains more in an Instagram video.
“I didn’t know that stuff like this actually f*cking happens to people,” he says in one video. “All I can remember is standing in a crowded club and this big guy keeps hitting me in my back, I look at him and I’m like, OK, he’s obviously turned up. And he just keeps hitting me. I ignore it. I keep ignoring the guy — he’s calling me a faggot. I realize that there’s two of the guys. Now they’re both in my face. The next thing I know, Honey tries to break it up. One of them punches Honey in the face, the other one punches me or the same one, I don’t know. Security comes.
Whether or not it was the Pouncey twins remain to be seen, but if Vasquez and Honey’s story can be verified, the Pouncey twins are looking at a world of trouble beyond just beating up someone at a club. Ever since the Dolphins bullying scandal, the NFL has been cracking down severely on any negative behavior like this. Gay bashing would definitely not be tolerated by the NFL or the Dolphins and Steelers organizations. It does seem odd that Vasquez and Honey decided to go to social media to discuss the situation rather than contacting the police immediately. However, since there is no police report, we can only assume the details of the story to be true until we have more information.
