Jason Collins

And The First Pro Athlete to Make a Homophobic Tweet Is ...

4/29/2013 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


... 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!

Is this really your headline? TMZ crew, I used to really love you guys, but you've become so biased lately. Mike Wallace had a right to oppose Homosexuality just as Lady Gaga has the right to support it. He should be able to exercise his first amendment right to free speech without being demonized by the media, which in this case, is you. Please stop it!

Wallace - you are a douchebag who obviously isn't ok or in touch w/ your own sexuality. Leave the guy alone. We don't want to hear your opinion or any one else's because it doesn't matter. Go back to being an overpaid professional athlete with no brain!!!!

It's funny how the media effects society. Soon heterosexuals will have to announce that they are straight to get the respect from society.

It's also funny how the gays have incorporate "double-speak" (Google that word...it's deep) on certain words. Before the word "Gay" meant a joyous feeling and now the homosexuals have claimed it to define their lifestyle, and can someone please explain to me why the word "Homophobic" would mean a person hatred towards gays?

The word "Homo" means man, and the word "Phobic" relates to fear. So a fear of man is what the word should be defined as. Wake up people before it's too late. Being a homosexual is an abomination...that's a fact. It's not about judging, but it is about being a good judge of character by listening to GOD.

It's funny how a gay person is praised for coming out. But when a homophobic comes out, they're crucified!
