On Saturday afternoon, All-American defensive end Michael Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams, making him the first openly gay player in NFL history. Video of Sam getting the news:
While most of the reactions to this news from people on the internet was overwhelming positive, some of it was predictably awful. And while no one in their right mind would ever read internet comments about a story as “polarizing” as this, sometimes it’s so insane, you just have to look? Nowhere was the hate more insane than on the horrific and ratchet (as the kids say) “urban” “news” “website” World Star Hip Hop. They posted the video, and here’s a sampling of what followed. (As of post time, there were well over 5000 comments.)
A lot of comments were about how gays = the end of civilization, which is kind of a compliment if you think about it? (If only we had that much power.)
White Vampires from The Big Bang Theory are brainwashing black ppl, FYI:
(Didn’t Michael Clark Duncan die??)
Someone with a very faggoty name gets right to the point:
So many comments were about poop.
But most were fantasy-fueled rants about the little white boy getting fucked by the big black dick. Take it away, Chicken Nuggets!
There were over 1,000 comments about how Michael Sam got signed to a team called the “Rams.” Get it?
Some ppl just wanted to eat ass!
Other ppl just wanted to suck some d 😉
When all else fails, resort to violence:
Some comments were actually sort of funny, in a 12-year-old kind of way.
Getting back to the more serious responses, it was only a matter of time before somebody brought a parrot into it.
But if there’s one takeaway from the entire debate, it’s to be wary of locker room booners.
