Falcons WR Roddy White Apologizes For Anti-Gay Tweets
Falcons wide receiver Roddy White apologized Thursday night for making anti-gay comments on Twitter earlier in the day accoridng to Angel K. Brooks of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. @roddywhiteTV said: "OK people I apologize for saying the word gay I know it's a sensitive subject and a athlete of my stature should not use it." So, how did it all begin? A fan asked White if he would rather lead the league in statistics than win a Super Bowl, and White tweeted: "Would u rather be gay or straight come on u know that answer?" Some of his followers took offense, so he followed up by saying: "Freedom of speech. I don't care how much money I make. I should be held to my own standards and not the standards of other opinion.#period" and "every time somebody says the word gay u want to get your panties in a bunch relax #whyusoemotional."
well, most people don't have a problem with what he said. most normal people use the word 'gay' in their everday vocabulary. that's not the point. it's the fact that these athletes know at this point that saying something like this publically WILL offend 'some' people and they will catch hell for it .............. yet they continue to do it time after time .............. just doesn't make any sense unless they're seeking negative attention for some reason.
