... 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!

Oh please. He didn't say anything hateful. He was just expressing his opinion that it was hard for him to understand. While it would have been better to not comment, there are far more horrible things that could have come out of his mouth if he really were a vile human being. Give him a break.

Homophobic tweet? What was homophobic about it? Don't the sodomites claim to have no idea how a man could touch a woman? Isn't that why they pretend they are 'gay'?

if a gay person claims to be born that way, what about pedophiles, rapists, people who prefer sodomy, bestiality folks, habitual masturbaters, etc... are they all born that way as well or we just picking and choosing here?

Most American sports involve grabbing balls with your hands. What did you expect?
