DeMarcus Lawrence Should Be Reprimanded For Reaction To Giants Fan, Dad Says
Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell should have a stern talking with DeMarcus Lawrence over his interaction with a little New York Giants fan … this according to the boy’s father.
11-year-old Kamil Bautista made headlines earlier this week after video surfaced of Lawrence — a Dallas Cowboys superstar — blowing off his autograph request because he was wearing a Saquon Barkley jersey.
In the video, you can see Lawrence give Kamil a sideways look, and tell him straight-up, “Get the right jersey, son!”
TMZ Sports spoke with Kamil’s father, Jorge Bautista, and he told us the situation at AT&T Stadium really sucked … saying he didn’t think the way Lawrence reacted to his son was right.
In fact, Jorge says he believes DeMarcus’ bosses need to sit the 6-foot-3, 265-pound pass rusher down and explain to him he can’t act that way around fans.
“I’ve got employees,” says Jorge, a Giants fan who works in a tennis shop in McAllen, Texas … “If my employees say something wrong to a customer, I’d be like, ‘Hey, that’s not right. You gotta be humble. You gotta be polite to people.'”
Jorge says he’s not mad over the fact that DeMarcus didn’t sign for his son … he claims there were several other Cowboys — including Randall Cobb and Jaylon Smith — who did the same.
But, Jorge’s beef stems from the way Lawrence reacted to Kamil … saying, “You’ve got my son who has the guts to approach you with his New York Giants fan, and you disrespect him like that?”
“I was like, man, I don’t think that was right.”
Jorge says he hasn’t heard anything from the Dallas Cowboys or the New York Giants over the incident … but two organizations have reached out to try to help massage the situation.
As for Lawrence, he didn’t seem sorry about the incident … writing on Twitter on Tuesday, “So if I’m honest with my own kids I will never treat your kid better than mine so suck it up. #SorryNotSorry.”
