So Chris Culliver is a homophobic piece of shit for his anti-gay remarks, but Isaac Sopoaga and Ahmad Brooks are not only homophobic pieces of shit, they are also painfully stupid.
Denying their participation in an It Gets Better video proves that they've been tackled a few too many times. Sopoaga is so fucking dumb he's telling USA Today, "I never went" to the filming "and now someone is using my name."
Oh, you poor idiot.
"I didn't make any video," Brooks also declared. Then, when he was shown the clip, he said, "Oh, that. It was an anti-bullying video, not a gay [rights] video."
Even though in the video the team declares, "The San Francisco 49ers are proud to join itgetsbetter.org to let all LGBT teens know that it gets better."
Did they not listen to the words coming out of their own mouths? Did they not bother to actually go to itgetsbetter.org before lending their voices to the project?
Either way, these are obviously very simple men who have no self-awareness, no empathy and no self-respect. They supported a worthy cause, but instead of doing good, they've made fools of themselves and insulted all the victims of bullying they could've helped.
They obviously don't realize that people look up to them and listen to what they say. They let their fans know that being gay is nothing to be afraid of, and by doing so they gave confidence to so many who are struggling or misguided. But now they've taken away that empowerment and replaced it with shame.
I'm glad Dan Savage has removed their video from the It Gets Better campaign. They are not worthy of the cause.
I don't give a shit about the Super Bowl this year, because duh, Madonna isn't performing, but I hope their bad karma kicks the 49ers in the ass on Sunday!
