While the situation isn’t amusing at all, I must admit I’m finding it a bit amusing how, particularly in light of the latest news that Ben told investigators he did have sexual contact with the accuser, but not intercourse, and that she fell and hit her head and that’s why she has a head injury, media outlets appear to be on the hunt to pair any story about Ben Roethlisberger with the fuggest grossest pictures they can find.
Cases in point:

Later, she says, Roethlisberger was hitting hard on another girl.
And pairs it with this oldie but goodie:
Or my personal favorite coming from Off the Record:
“It depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is.”
