Stetson Bennett is embroiled in a cellphone scandal following Georgia’s championship parade

Saturday in Athens, Georgia fans flooded the streets to catch a sight of quarterback Stetson Bennett during the team’s championship celebrations, but his actions did not please everyone.

Bennett, who led the Bulldogs to back-to-back championships, including a 65-7 rout of TCU on Jan. 9, was criticized on Tuesday by Atlanta radio personality Steak Shapiro, who tweeted that the 25-year-old quarterback “needed someone to tell him to get off his damn phone during a parade and to show graciousness and appreciation to the fans who were sitting in that stadium.”

Shapiro stated, “If you want to crush the media you believe were unkind to you, do so at a press conference.”

Bennett was travelling in a car while staring at his phone while a reporter from WSB-TV attempted to speak with him at the parade. This image has been immortalized on social media.

Bennett appeared to criticize the media for prior assessments of Georgia, saying at the platform, “Y’all kept telling us how bad we were,” before adding, “Forget it, we have two rings.”

Bennett responded to Shapiro through Twitter after missing this year’s national championship postgame news conference.

“Parades are a symbol of celebration, and although last year’s parade was a celebration of that title, this year’s was a celebration of a very important time (for me! There is, of course, the potential that I am wrong). And while we respect the fans as a team, we appreciate our teammates as individuals. Those individuals for whom we have shattered bones, torn ligaments, bled, cried, changed, grown, and laughed for years.

“To assist you fill in those terrible holes, the squad celebrates with the spectators in a large parade. A teammate celebrates with another teammate in a little personal vehicle. Identify who I am. Teammate, indeed! In order for Chris, Sed, and I to have a great time on our final journey into Sanford, I was controlling the aux and playing bangers. That’s basically the gist of it.”

Bennett closed his message by saying, “P.S. : I dislike you a great deal, Mr. Steak ‘and shake’ Shapiro. To be truthful, I am also not a fan of your work.”
