This past Saturday, Michael Sam became the first openly gay football player to be drafted in the NFL. As any young talented football player would do after finding out they made it to a NFL team, he celebrated after hearing this news. ESPN showed him kissing his significant other.
Fellow professional (and fellow college) athletes, grown men, cried out on Twitter like unprofessional babies.
I present to you, what I am dubbing, the Sports Hall of Fame of Big Giant Homophobic Children Who Can’t Handle Seeing Two Grown Men Kiss:
This is Case McCoy, the former quarterback for the University of Texas Longhorns. I am truly not sure what part of this I enjoy more: the fact that I get to post this hilarious pic of his dumb face or the fact that he went UNDRAFTED, as did every single one of his teammates, Homophobic baby? Petulant child?
Most definitely both.
Retired NFL running back Derrick Ward, who had a big retired baby Twitter temper tantrum. These are just some of his tweet:
Don Jones, current Miami Dolphins defensive back, whom, after tweeting “omg” and “horrible” in response to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend, was fined and suspended by his team. HaHa. Yes, feel free to point and laugh at him:
Retired NFL wide receiver turned sports anchor, Andy McCullough, whom seemingly had a flash in the pan career because I honestly can’t find much of anything about this nobody:
Florida State linebacker DeMarcus Walker wanted to remind us of poor Tim Tebow, whom he, and other Christians who seek to play the victimization card, thinks was mocked for being Christian. In reality, DeMarcus, Tim Tebow was mocked because he sucks at football.
Marshall Henderson, who played basketball for Ole Miss, without a doubt is my favorite of all the idiots here though. He gets his own wing in this hall. He tweeted:
After receiving tons of negative response for his homophobic reactions, Marshall Henderson tried to save himself in the most hilarious of ways:
Yes, I’m sure Marshall Henderson, intelligently pictured above, very much wanted to help his nonexistent gay friend with a psychology study, which also likely does not exist.
If you see any other professional or college level athletes who shared their bigoted views of Michael Sam that are not posted here, please do send them this way.
