... Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace!!

Just HOURS after NBA player Jason Collins announced he's gay, 26-year-old Wallace took right to Twitter to provide the first ignorant comment.

“All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH (shakin' my head) …”

30 minutes later, Wallace deleted his tweet and replaced it with a half-assed explanation:

"Never said anything was right or wrong I just said I don't understand!! Deeply sorry for anyone that I offended."

Fun Fact -- Dolphins are one of the few animals that engage in gay sex!

Mike you are the new gay guy. I applaud you for standing up for your values and opinion. who gives a shi* if some rope sucker calls you homophobic. Same tool thinks it is okay to label all white males racist rednecks. As though they don't mean the word redneck the same way they say fa**ot is meant. A derogative put down. The glbt community can f**k their selves. Bunch of oversensitive Nazis'.

Silly. It appears as if you're trying to fan the fire. How do we know he was referring to Collins. Maybe he just saw some gay guys and tweeted a random thought.? Mountain out of a molehill, again.

I've learned that those who are the most homophobic often are closeted homosexuals. They use hate to take the attention off from their own struggles. So, Mike Wallace, what's your story?

With all the **** there is against gay guys, you would think they would "come back from the other side" if being gay was a choice and not something you are born with.

Your sexlife and your job have nothing in common. The fact that feel the need to discuss sucking ***** in public is gay in and of itself.

WTF! Every news site has something about being gay as their top story! I'm sick of hearing about it! I hate gays, and reading about it makes me uncomfortable

The NBA dude is allowed to be gay just the same as the NFL dude is allowed to not understand why people are gay. Everyone (in the USA) is allowed their own point of view and freedom of speech. Fun Fact: If all dolphins where gay we would have no more dolphins. They don't adopt.

Mr.Mackey    

seems like the gays are really passionate about being gay and the non gay people are very passionate about not being gay, there is no gray area here
