... 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!

I love Women and have no interest in guys. But Mike Wallace you are a complete MORON. THINK which may hard for you. But THINK before you post things.

Isn't this the same organization that referred to Sly Stallone's dead dog as "rest in pieces"?!? And TMZ is lecturing other people about sensitivity?

Truth    

But TMZ's bigotry towards Tim Tebow is just fine.

Thanks for the typical hypocrisy.

"...Then in 1970 gay activists protested against the APA convention in San Francisco. These scenes were repeated in 1971, and as people came out of the “closet” and felt empowered politically and socially, the APA directorate became increasingly uncomfortable with their stance. In 1973 the APA’s nomenclature task force recommended that homosexuality be declared normal. The trustees were not prepared to go that far, but they did vote to remove homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses by a vote of 13 to 0, with 2 abstentions. This decision was confirmed by a vote of the APA membership, and homosexuality was no longer listed in the seventh edition of DSM-II, which was issued in 1974.

What’s noteworthy about this is that the removal of homosexuality from the list of mental illnesses was not triggered by some scientific breakthrough."

Im sorry, is this not still a free country? The only reason this is news is that most people feel the same way this guy does and finds the idea of two sweaty men having sex to be very disgusting, degrading and doing nothing but a sexual perversion. Figures all of the gays at TMZ were just waiting for this to happen. Where were they when people were making fun of Tebow saying he was a Christian. Hyporcrites.

Geesh, a person can't have his own opinions. That opinion shouldn't offend anyone. He didn't say it was wrong to be gay. I know Harvey pounced on this because of his preference in men, but don't hate someone for making a non-gay bashing comment.
