Marshall Henderson tweets ignorant comments on Michael Sam, then backtracks


Because it’s 2014, much of the country reacted really well to Michael Sam getting drafted by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday.

Our colleagues over at Turf Show Times did a nice job of chronicling Sam’s support.

However, despite all the progress the U.S. has made in terms of accepting – or at least tolerating – gay people, there are still some really dumb, ignorant people out there. Some of these people are high-profile athletes with a pretty loud platform.

Enter former Ole Miss basketball player and cocaine abuser Marshall Henderson.

But wait! There’s a twist! Or is there? Personally, I think Henderson is full of shit. You can judge for yourself.

OK, so maybe this is all a (distasteful and very poorly executed) psychology experiment. Marshall, why don’t you clear the air and tell us how you really feel about gay rights?

Wait, what? What the hell does that mean? I’m pretty sure scholars could spend the next 100 years trying to parse that tweet and still not have a clue what he’s talking about. Just go away, Marshall.
