If you didn’t know who Chris Culliver was before today, you will be very familiar with him by tomorrow. That is because the gays are coming for his neck after what the San Francisco 49ers cornerback had to say about gays in the NFL.
In a radio interview with shock jock Artie Lange, Culliver was asked if he’s ever been approached by a gay guy.
“I don’t do the gay guys man. I don’t do that,” he responded.
Next he was asked if there were any gay players on the 49ers team. Here is what Culliver said:
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.
Culliver added that any down low gay player on the team should wait at least ten years before coming out of the closet.
Update: The fallout has begun. The San Francisco 49ers front office released the following statement today.
“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made [Tuesday], 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.”
And Yahoo Sports points out that there has never been an openly gay NFL player “in the NFL’s long history.”
