Option A: Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston for telling a group of elementary school kids that women should be seen but not heard:

“All my young boys, stand up. The ladies, sit down. But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? … But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle.”

Option B: The principal of Melrose Elementary in St. Petersburg, Fla., who invited Winston to speak to the kids knowing that his background includes a shoplifting conviction, a suspension for screaming vulgarities, being detained by police for squirrel hunting on the Florida State University campus and being accused of rape in a winding investigation that resulted in FSU paying a $950,000 settlement to the alleged victim.
