We’re pretty sure that any minute now, San Francisco 49ers CB Chris Culliver will be issuing an apology that he doesn’t even mean. Whether you agree with him or disagree with him, it’s clear that he is not a fan of gays. You don’t say what he said at media day and have that be an accident or taken out of context.
He was asked about gays in the NFL, and he gave this brilliant response.
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” Culliver said. “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.”
Now, it’s one thing to be a homophobe, which Culliver clearly is. But, haven’t noticed what happens when other athletes have made similar statements to the media and on Twitter? It always blow up and you always have to issue a BS apology that for some reason people are satisfied with.
the 49ers as a team have already started the apologizing”
“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.”
Yes, I think you’re a horse’s ass and a neanderthal for being homophobe. But, you’re an idiot on top of that because you aren’t smart enough to know how these comments are going to be received. Count us among the people that don’t care if he issues an apology. Means absolutely nothing.
