Hope Tony Buzbee has more damning texts/DMs than these because there doesn't seem to be anything wrong here. If you're trying to make "glutes" seem like its something bad … it's not. pic.twitter.com/oggGnbJVcb

The message is dated March 30, 2020.
the message date correlates with the date the woman accused Watson of Sexual harassment.
While Watson allegedly attempted to explain that the massage therapist wasn’t massaging him the way he needed her too he “purposely exposed the tip of his penis from under the towel” and was “full erect.”
“As a result of his moving of his hips, Watson purposely touched Plaintiff’s hand with the tip of his erect penis,” according to the lawsuit.
Jane Doe said that she started crying and asked Watson to leave
“I know you have a career and a reputation, and I know you would hate for someone to mess with yours, just like I don’t want anyone messing with mine.”
The Texans quarterback responded, “As a result of a social media post by a publicity-seeking plaintiff’s lawyer, I recently became aware of a lawsuit that has apparently been filed against me,” Watson wrote.
“I have not yet seen the complaint, but I know this: I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect.”
“The plaintiff’s lawyer claims that this isn’t about money, but before filing suit he made a baseless six-figure settlement demand, which I quickly rejected. Unlike him, this isn’t about money for me – it’s about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that.”
“We take accusations of this nature that involve anyone within the Houston Texans organization seriously. We will await further information before making any additional statements on this incident,” the team said.
