... 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!

Singers and Movie Stars come out of the closet everyday. NO BIG DEAL..... call me when a MAJOR STAR comes out. This guy is at the end of his career he might not make a NBA team next season. This is not Jackie Robinson. You can hide being gay but you can't hide your color.

Just because the guy doesn't agree or have an opinion about gay men doesn't equate to being homophobic. I know gay people take alot of flack but everyone will not agree with the lifestyle. does that make them a homophobic person?

When gay marriage is legalized then NFL players can marry each other. Then what you do is start a reality TV show about it. Cha-Ching! Free production idea. You're welcome..

He tweeted that because he believes it is a matter of choice, for him why a guy choses a guy over a woman. What he should know is that gay life is a constant struggle for acceptance, if it is a choice, why chose the difficult path in life?, Maybe because that is the way they are?, and they don't want to lie about it?, think!!!!.

I honestly don't see where Mike Wallace said anything that should have offended anybody...he was simply sharing his view. No finger pointing, names mentioned, or even putting anyone down, just his view. If a homosexual had tweeted something similar, only referring to all of the males in the world; people would just laugh, if they acknowledged it at all. Just because you aren't a homosexual & can't understand homosexual was, & comment on not understanding, doesn't make you homophobic. Peace.

if jason collins is gay then there is no reason to tell anyone about it thats his business, so why the need to publish who and where he choose to put his penis

Jason's situation is different from Magic's son's because the later is young and has always been out. Jason is 34yrs and lived his life pretending to be strait, he felt the need for coming out.
