The shitstorm in which Roosters co-captain Mitchell Pearce
finds himself after video footage showing
him simulating a sex act ON A DOG broke the Internet yesterday is only just beginning.
The State of Origin player has been stood down from all training commitments until an internal investigation into his actions – which occurred at an Australia Day house party, and aired on A Current Affair – has been completed.
“The Club wishes to advise that Mitchell Pearce has been stood down from all training commitments until the Club concludes its internal investigation,” reads a statement from the Roosters.
League insiders also say it’s more likely than not that he’ll be banned from travelling to the UK for next month’s World Club Challenge – maybe even be stripped of his captaincy – and fined at least $50,000 over his drunken behaviour, of which it’s tough to determine which is the most fuckboi-like:
1) Forcefully kissing an uninterested female party goer.
2) Mimicking a lewd act on a Maltese terrier, despite the owner repeatedly trying to pull the dog away.
3) Making slurs about Indigenous people.
4) Pissing himself / all over the couch.
ICYMI, here’s the clip:
