... 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!

Pretty sure TMZ will spearhead the effort to have this guy banished from the NFL for having the nerve to say his thoughts. I'm fine with what both men have said. At least they can say this in America. Here you can be whatever you want, just be prepaired for the backlash. In the middle East, one of them would be strung up and stoned to death.

As a straight man, I've never understood why so many other 'straight men' worry so much about gay guys.

For me, a gay man equals one less SOB trying to pick up MY chicks! So why on Earth would any straight guys worry so much about what's the sexual preference of another guy?

Unless, you know... they themselves are in the closet... only thing that makes sense.

What was "homophobic" about his comment? A phobia is a fear. "Phobic" would imply a "fear of a homosexuality or a homosexual". I didn't read anything in his comment that would lead me to believe he was in fear of a homosexual. I read his comment as an attempt to be funny more than anything else. But aside from that, we are all entitled to our opinions in all maters, whether it be religion, politics, etc. Aren't we? Why is that the LBGT community is entitled to live their lives the way they see fit, and have their own opinions and beliefs, but those with an opinion or belief that differs from their own are labeled with "Homophobic". He has his opinion and its worth no more or no less than anyone else's. That doesn't make the LBGT community HeteralPhobic".

Sounds like only the most intelligent animals enjoy some gay sex every once in a while. I'm no one to judge them.

Hey Mike, you only get laid because of your job. If you were Mike the janitor, you would be sitting at home watching porn rubbing one out. And BTW, never heard of you and could care less what some pig from the Trailer Park State thinks.

It's ridiculous how one can not even have their own opinion/comment about this situation. Last I checked everyone is entitled to their own opinion! Not everyone agrees with being gay relationships, but it doesn't necessarily mean they hate gay people?! Get over it!

@TMZ: You are wrong. Almost all social mammals engage in same-sex behaviour. And sex that is not procreative in nature. It is a method of socializing.
