Mike Wallace needs to learn how to RESPECT gay people ... so says the Miami Dolphins organization, which says it strongly condemns the comments made by their star receiver.
A rep for the NFL team tells TMZ ... the Dolphins took immediate action once they learned about Wallace's homophobic tweet, in which he condescendingly questions why Collins would want to "mess with other guys" when there are so many beautiful girls in the world.
The Dolphins tell us ..."Mike Wallace has apologized for his comments, and we have addressed the matter with him."
"Mike’s comments do not reflect the views of the Miami Dolphins. We believe in a culture of inclusiveness and respect, and any statements to the contrary are in no way acceptable to our organization."
"We will address the entire team about our policy of inclusion and make sure they all understand the importance of respecting individual choices.”
Wallace has since deleted the tweet.
TMZ spoke with a rep for the NFL, who tells us the league office will review the situation -- and decide if the player will be fined or suspended.
Miami Dolphins safety Jonathon Amaya was arrested in Miami Beach early this morning ... after he allegedly choked out a cab driver.
According to the Miami Beach PD, 24-year-old Amaya -- 6'2", 185 lbs -- had given the cab driver $100 to take him outside the cab driver's usual area ... but during the ride, the NFL player got "aggressive."
The taxi driver told police he tried to kick Amaya out of the cab -- and even offered to return the $100 -- but Amaya refused. Instead, the cab driver claims, Amaya “leaned forward and wrapped his hands around his neck and started choking him."
When cops arrived to the scene, Amaya was still inside the cab. The driver told the responding officers, "This man is trying to kill me."
Cops say the cab driver did not have any visible injuries.
Amaya was eventually "escorted" out of the vehicle and arrested for battery just after 4AM.
FYI -- Amaya didn't record a single tackle in the Dolphins victory over the Seahawks on Sunday ... and only has 4 tackles on the year.
10:45 AM PT -- A rep for the Dolphins tells TMZ ... "We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information.”
Terry Bradshaw made the biggest fumble in the NFL on Sunday when he compared Reggie Bush TD run to "chasing a bucket of chicken" -- but the jaw-dropping comment was intended to be an inside joke ... TMZ has learned.
Hall of Famer Bradshaw was describing Reggie's play during yesterday's halftime highlights show on FOX NFL Sunday -- when he spewed, "Look at this Jimmy, like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day."
Sources who were inside the FOX studio yesterday ... tell TMZ Terry was not trying to insult African-American Reggie -- but instead was taking a shot at fellow FOX analyst Jimmy Johnson.
We're told the entire cast and crew has always busted on JJ -- on and off air -- for his love of fried chicken ... and that's why TB called out Jimmy during his comment.
It's the LAST tab you'd ever wanna pick up -- a bill for a lavish steak dinner consumed by the heavyweights on the Miami Dolphins offensive line -- but Monday night, several unlucky rookies did just that ... and it cost 'em $7,400.
All told, there were 10 players at the dinner at Prime One Twelve steakhouse in Miami Beach -- fresh off their Sunday night victory over the Bengals -- meaning the average cost per head was $740.
Dolphins guard Richie Incognito tells us, they ordered practically everything on the menu -- including Wagyu beef, which runs $35 AN OUNCE ... in addition to a full array of appetizers, expensive wines, and of course ... lemon drop shots.
Incognito tells us, the guys go out for dinner several times a year as a bonding experience -- and it's a tradition to make the rookies pay for one of those meals.
We're told the rooks split the bill based on their salaries -- which means starting right tackle Jonathan Martin paid the most.
Champagne problems ... in this case, Dom Perignon.
The crazy spending didn't end at dinner -- sources tell TMZ, the crew dropped by the FDR lounge at the Delano hotel following their feast ... where the rookies dropped over $2,000 on a table and drinks.
Reggie Bush hit an L.A. hotspot last night ... partying like he just won the Super Bowl -- problem is, his winless Miami Dolphins JUST had their asses handed to them by the San Diego Chargers.
Bush was spotted at XIV in Hollywood around 10PM last night -- gripping a Corona while go-go dancers in body paint danced their faces off and people wearing glowsticks ... did whatever it is that people wearing glowsticks do.
Roughly six hours before the party, Bush wrapped up another lackluster performance on the field ... rushing for a mere 50 yards during a 26-16 loss in San Diego.
For the record, Bush is a grown-ass man and can do whatever the hell he wants in his downtime -- but it's a questionable move for a guy who's been HEAVILY criticized for playing like crap this season.
TMZ placed multiple calls to Reggie's agent for comment -- so far, no response.
