49ers’ Chris Culliver Goes On An Anti-Gay Rant
Some athletes should learn just not to talk. If you know what you are going to say can get you in any kind of trouble or make your organization look bad, then don’t say it.
Second-year cornerback Chris Culliver made this rookie mistake and on Super Bowl media day when most of the questions are outlandish and non-football related, he dropped a bomb.
Comedian Artie Lange asked Culliver about the possiblity of gay player being a teammate, and Culliver gave a very honest response:
“I don’t do the gay guys man, 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.”
When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded:
“Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”
It’s 2013 Chris, you can’t be saying shit like this anymore man. Even if that’s how you feel just ask for the next question. Not a smart move by a guy who plays in San Francisco, the gayest place in America.
The 49ers issued a statement on Wednesday in response to Culliver’s discriminating 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.”
