The Sex, Lies, and Spray Tans podcast host’s comments come days after Sharna voiced her disappointment after the competition show announced Adrian as competitor this season.
“There’s one person that I’d like to share that I’m really shocked is on there is Adrian Peterson, the football player,” she recalled on the Sept. 18 episode of her Old-ish podcast. “The man has been charged with child abuse of his 4-year-old son in the way that he punishes him and that is just devastating for me.”
In 2014, Adrian was indicted on a felony charge for allegedly harming his then 4-year-old son with a switch, leading to cuts on his body, per USA Today. Adrian pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of misdemeanor reckless assault and avoided jail time. He also received a two-year probation period, a $4,000 fine and 80 hours of community service and faced a one-year suspension in the NFL.
“I’m telling you now if I walked into a room and that was my partner,” Sharna continued, “I would turn around and walk right out. There is no way—now being a mother—I would be able to stomach that.”
