The Super Bowl is next Sunday, and while we’re still waiting to see what longtime ally Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo will do with the media, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver seems to have been drinking that hater-aid and likes to talk about it.
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.” – Yahoo News.
It’s sad to see a player from one of the gay capitals of the world act so negatively to a some of his supporters. Guess what, gays like sports. The two are NOT mutually exclusive.
Of course something like this does not go unnoticed The 49ers released a statement responding Culliver’s horrendous comments:
“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”
Okay, so 49ers you have addressed the issue? How? Are you going to make him apologize at some point? Maybe some sensitivity training? What’s going on? I doubt anything we get (if ever) from Culliver will be more than a non-apology anyways. However I’d like for him to prove me wrong!
Yeah, definitely rooting for the Baltimore Ravens on this one.
