I don’t know where y’all are finding these lawyers… this may have given the opposite effect of what was initially intended.
As March began, Jonathan Majors was feeling on top of the world, thanks to the arrival of two huge projects – Ant-Man: Quantimania and Creed III.. Following the latter’s highly anticipated premiere, he and co-star/director Michael B. Jordan enjoyed their time in the spotlight, consistently making fans laugh (and swoon).. Unfortunately, for the 33-year-old, things quickly came crashing down last weekend when he was arrested and charged with assault, among other things.
Since he was taken into custody, Majors’ legal team has continued to deny any wrongdoing on his part. On Thursday (March 30), the defense shared screenshots of texts between the actor and his alleged victim, seemingly attempting to prove his innocence. However, as many social media users are pointing out, it could be argued that the receipts actually make the accused attacker look more guilty. “Please let me know you’re okay when you get this,” one of the messages begins. They assured me that you won’t be charged. They said they had to arrest you as protocol when they saw the injuries on me and they knew we had a fight.”

The anonymous woman went on to say that she was angered over the situation, and “will make sure nothing happens about this.” Aside from her lengthy paragraphs, the only words that came from Majors’ phone were “Did you leave the keys?” and “Goodbye, [redacted].” While they don’t exactly prove or disprove anything at this point, social media is having a field day reacting to the investigation’s latest update.
“Jonathan Majors’ lawyer really woke up and was like, ‘Let’s put out evidence that the girl did pass out and collapse and maybe people won’t ask how that happened if she says she grabbed his phone,’” one Twitter user quipped this morning. “You have to be the dumbest lawyer alive to think releasing texts from your client’s victim that have her taking the blame for injuries she received from him are evidence of his innocence instead of one of the clearest signs of domestic violence and an abusive relationship,” someone else wrote. Another person added, “Jonathan Majors got his lawyer from the same place Trump got his.”
Take a look at the text receipts followed by some of the on-line section and make sure to tell us your thoughts on the situation.

Jonathon Majors not responding to that emotional and vulnerable text is so triggering for me.

This doesn’t even prove anything. The victim is obviously responding the way a lot of victims do when they’re trying to cover for their abusers. She’s trying to protect him out of fear & possible retaliation. I honestly don’t see this working out in his favor. https://t.co/YnOqe7H3sn

His lawyers are incredibly foolish, because this just shows how petrified she is of him. https://t.co/2KzecDkJGq

She had injuries. A laceration behind her ear. A medical confirmation of strangulation. Collapsed. Passed out. Had to be taken to the hospital.
But she believes she deserves it because she tried to grab his phone.
I’m so sorry for her. https://t.co/de57nCrbaM
