Marshall Henderson had been quiet on Twitter during the season but jumped back on in a big way today with Michael Sam as his platform.
Henderson ripped ESPN for showing Sam, the Missouri defensive end who after the season announced he was gay and was drafted Saturday by the Rams, kissing another man.
Im sorry, but I DO NOT AGREE WHATSOEVER that should be shown to where innocent eyes can see!!!
This was Henderson’s second tweet on the topic. I didn’t post the full first tweet because of some language. His first tweet said, “My brothers are 7 and 11 and saw that !!!”
After a number of negative responses to his opinion, Henderson posted this:
One of my best friends, WHO IS GAY, is about to graduate in psychology, asked me to say these things so he can have responses … TBC
During Henderson’s experiment, Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork had this to say on Twitter:
I'm extremely disappointed & we do not condone the statements made by our former bball player. We believe in respect & dignity for all……
We use significant resources to educate our student-athletes about respect & dignity for all people & unfortunately not everyone gets it….
