San Francisco 49er Chris Culliver was chatting up shock jock Artie Lange before the 2013 Super Bowle when he said: “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.” He then proceeded to pretty much say gays don’t belong in the league at all, and should only “come out” after leaving for 10 years.
This was before his team was preparing to play against the Ravens (who has a vocal player, Brendan Ayanbadejo, who has supported marriage equality). Later Culliver recanted and even volunteered at the Trevor Project. His teammates denied ever making an It Gets Better video and organization co-founder Dan Savage yanked the vid.
