Even professional athletes aren’t immune to bullying!

Jonathan Martin, a tackle for the Miami Dolphins, has been absent from the team after an incident that happened on Monday.

When the NFLer sat down at lunch, everyone else at the table got up and left. After that, Martin got up and left the Dolphins’ facility and hasn’t returned.

There are also reports that he’d gotten the nickname “Big Weirdo” from his teammates, and that he’d dealt with both family and personal insults.

According to sources, the organization knew that Martin was enduring stuff that was far beyond any hazing rituals.

Martin is a smart guy who went to Stanford and has two lawyers for parents, so the NFLPA is already looking into the issue.

This is the tackle’s second season with the Dolphins, but for now, he’s on a personal leave of absence and is spending time with his family. The team has listed him as “out” for Sunday due to illness.

Hearing about this is just awful, and we hope that the responsible parties are punished and that Martin gets all of the help he needs!
