We had some fun with hack “journalist” loser Ben Shapiro and expert on all things “hero,” Tim Brando yesterday. Basically, they were none too happy that Jason Collins came out and became the first openly gay man in not only the NBA, but in all of the major pro sports.
However, while Ben Shapiro and Tim Brando were cowardly hiding their homophobia behind the meaning of the word “hero,” many brave souls took to the internet to straight up call Jason Collins a “fag,” “faggot,” “cocksucker,” etcetera etcetera.
While there were hundreds and hundreds of tweets to sift through, here were the ones that stood out most. These tweets, to me, were louder then them all in proudly proclaiming "I AM A HOMOPHOBIC BIGOT AND AM UNCOMFORTABLE WITH MY OWN SEXUALITY!"
The above two were the first to tweet “Jason Collins” and “faggot” in the same tweet! These guys were so quick to post, it’s almost like they were worried Jason Collins was about to come out for them too!
First thing mentioned in Matt Barber’s Twitter bio? “CHRIST FOLLOWER.”
lmao. ”JASON COLLINS, NOT ONLY ARE YOU A GAY MAN, BUT YOU MAKE A LOT MORE MONEY THAN I WILL EVER SEE.” Sick burn, dude.
A dude who goes by “ChampagnePapi” is most definitely, totally 100% straight.
Ah, the AIDS / HIV tweets. I feel like these are in a category of their own.
And now…TEBOW TIME!
Poor, poor Tim Tebow. It’s clearly so much harder for a white Christian male who plays professional sports to openly pray in public in the United States of America than for a black Christian male who plays professional sports to just announce who he is as a person and not do anything any differently in public in the United States of American. CLEARLY. I mean, if anything, these tweets just show how easy it is for Jason Collins.
Yes, those are the first two replies to Jason Collins’ tweet yesterday and the first two tweets you see when looking at this specific tweet. But…
Oh, it’s definitely cool…
…and they definitely are…
..and Jason Collins most certainly has…
So be afraid, homophobes.
