Dolphins Fine and Suspend Don Jones for Controversial Tweet About Michael Sam
Marshall Henderson Posts Anti-Gay Tweets Regarding Michael Sam, Then Backpedals In The Stupidest Way Possible
If you’re ever caught doing something really, really stupid, and there’s no way you can deny it, you should probably say you were doing it as part of a sociological experiment, commissioned by one of your best friends who is gay.
Allow us to catch you up if you didn’t quite follow that.
Marshall Henderson, a pretty good basketball player for Ole Miss and an apparent moron, took to Twitter like so many others to weigh in on the whole “Michael Sam is gay, and he plays football, and if we don’t all register our opinions on this at once, we will die” issue. It’s quite a lengthy rant of bullshit, so we posted screencaps of the tweets, and if you want to read them straight from Henderson’s Twitter feed, click here.
So, after Sam kissed his boyfriend in celebration after being drafted, Marshall Henderson started this font of idiocy:
“I do not agree whatsoever that should be shown to where innocent eyes can see”? It would appear Mr. Henderson is not an English major.
Realizing that he was quickly traveling up Shit Creek, sans paddle, Henderson tried to pawn it off using the old, “My homophobic tweet was done at the behest of a homosexual friend who is conducting some sort of sociological experiment on incendiary statements.”
I bet he thinks that one was pretty crafty, and that the bloodhounds were off his scent.
There are very few words to express the range of emotions that this series of tweets conjures up, not just in regards to Henderson, but to social media and humanity as well. Yikes.
