Dolphins Player Mike Wallace Makes Homophobic Tweets Over Jason Collins News

Earlier today, NBA player Jason Collins made history as the first active athlete in a major American sports league to come out as a gay. Just hours later, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was just the latest athlete to come out as an idiot.

All these interesting things in the world to Tweet about and people wanna broadcast their ignorance SMH...

The reaction on Twitter has been swift and snarky.

Wallace quickly deleted his Tweets and issued something of an apology.

Wallace is one of the Dolphins' key off season acquisitions. He signed a five-year contract with the team worth $60 million with the team last month. We'll see if he loses at least some of that money to a fine.

So what he came out and said he was gay and now he is a hero. Mike Wallace does not need to apologize to anyone that is how he felt. Now this Jason Collins is a hero. Come on the real hero's are the men and women in the military who fight for our rights and people like Jason Collins. I do not have nothing against Mr. Collins, but to get mad at Mike Wallace and to make Mr. Collins a hero because he came out is sad. The real hero's in the military get nothing from the government when they get home unless they were in the Military for 20 years.

Proof Positive that Homosexuality is not something you're born with - Jason Collins has an identical twin, Jarron Collins, who is heterosexual. If they are identical and share all their DNA and everything, than by definition, Jason Collins chose this and was shaped this way by his life experiences as they may have diverged from his brother's. Furthering this, Jason Collins dated a woman for 8 years, and ostensibly engaged in vaginal coitus with her. So no matter how conflicted he "Felt" or what was in his mind, he WAS a Heterosexual at that time, and now, claims not to be.  It would be a huge mistake for society to accomodate gays in any legal way, because obviously, people can change, evolve, and vary throughout their life on this.

but seriously, does Mike Wallace want to stick his dick in a WOMAN'S ASS? An asshole is an asshole, wouldn't you say? We're all so damn judgmental of everybody and we think our opinion is the right and only way. We're all human beings trying to live in this world, each having a different plan and journey.. So seriously, shut the fuck up. Who the fuck cares who this guys sleeps with and for that matter, if it makes you feel that uncomfortable, maybe you need to check yourself because I'm sure you like to put your dick in woman's asses. Get out of everybody's bedroom!

political correctness has brainwashed people. this guy has as much a right to feel this way, as a man has the right to sleep with another man. Who are you, New Times, to say that he's wrong for believing this?

What he said was that he didn't UNDERSTAND. How is that homophobic? It ISN'T! Don't make this guy a villain over that.

Who cares what Mike Wallace said or tweeted. It's a free country. He can say whatever he wants. He has a right to his own opinion just like everyone else

Does Mike Wallace understand brain surgery? If he said he didn't, does that mean he HATES brain surgeons? If he said he doesn't understand how to fly a plane, does that mean he HATES pilots? So how does him saying he doesn't understand why a MAN would want to stick his dick in a MANS ass, mean he hates gay people? I am sure he doesn't understand WOMEN any more than I do, but it sure doesn't mean he, or I hate them! Those whi are jumping on him for his statement, are doing exactly what they accuse him of doing! JUDGING and being intolerant!

The guy did not say anything negative.. Anyone who hints at not agreeing with America's popular opinion is an idiot? All these forward thinking people are actually pushing us backwards. The man has a right to an opinion even if it doesn't agree with yours. He was just saying he doesn't understand.. didn't say anything about it being right or wrong. Free speech has gone out the window..

Yeah, people can say whatever they want, but they shouldn't. This fucktard is obviously homophobic, and being a professional athlete with influence, should've kept his ignorant thoughts to himself. He doesn't NEED to understand someone another person's sexual preference. It's not a choice that Collins doesn't prefer the "beautiful women" to other men!

He can say whatever he wants. That's freedom of speech. Not understanding does not make him an idiot. I'm tired of been shot down when you say something and people react offensively against you. Are you Black ? Are You Gay ? BIG F.... Deal who cares . you are who you are, live with it

Antoino Cherry... wow. I truly appreciate it when someone's ignorance is so blatant that I don't even really need to address it. I'll just say thanks for showing it in so many ways with that one rambling statement.

He didn't make homophobic remarks. He said he doesn't understand it. That's an honest statement. And being that he's not gay, he doesn't need to understand it. There are things I don't understand that people do, too. I don't like eating liver, and I simply cannot understand how anyone can possibly want to eat liver. Is that me attacking people who eat liver? Nope. It's just a preference thing. Way too much sensitivity on this one.

Kudos to Collins for living his life the way he wants to life it. As for Wallace, I wouldn't be so quick to say he's being homophobic. He merely states that he doesn't understand it. So his lack of understanding homosexuality is homophobic? Lets not be so quick to throw that on someone just like you shouldn't with racist. If Wallace said he didn't understand why someone would choose chemistry or physics over English, does it mean he's again Science? SMH.

He got the right to feel how he feels about the situation the same way that fag, I mean dude, got a right to b gay and tell everybody about it! Why do we have to bow down our morale to a buch of quiers just to make them feel comfortable? Its gonna b very uncomfortable in the locker room now dont u think? Keep dat feminine stuff to yourselves. I not gay and I dont have to accept your lifestyle! Im just saying what real guys like wallace want to say but cant bcuz theyll get scrutinized by the gay community! I personally dont care what u call me or say. And yes I hate anything that God hates and he did not create the desire of man to love man or vice versa. Its a ancient and power spirit that I prefer to call jezebel which influences people to feel aqnd behave that way, but narrow minded people wont understand this.

He's an idiot. He made an ignorant comment. May not be offensive in the traditional sense but what he said makes it sound like being gay is a choice.

@Tyrone Kellman So hypothetically if I say "I can't stand the black community, they make me sick, it's immoral to be black, we can't have this. It's a sin."  Is that something that should be OK to say? Without getting bashed? IT'S an opinion.

@Kimberly Thomas-Kelley  I agree, it's funny how if you take a stand for what you personally believe, you're homophobic. People are manipulating with that idea. If I don't like pound cake, that doesn't mean I have a phobia. It simply means that I don't like it. Stop manipulating. Don't take my rights to establish yours.

@Anthony Bartilotta and you, Anthony, and are absolutely loving, tolerant, prince of a human being to say that anyone who disagrees with your agenda regarding gays in any way is a "fucktard" - you are not a bully at all, and definitely not a hypocrite, for condemning what you perceived as hatefulness toward gays, by making an unquestionably hateful comment about Mike Wallace.  Way to go.  Peace. Coexist. Tolerance. Equal Sign. You are a beacon of love.

@David Angel Taylor Agree - it is a bunch of crap, but great marketing and a great tactic -- you label your opponents Something-Phobic, so you're saying, IF YOU DISAGREE WITH US, YOU'RE CRAZY!!  MENTALLY INSANE!!!  Sadly, this tactic has worked and become mainstream. If you are wary of Islamic Terrorists, your Islamophobic, etc...  George Orwell 1984

@Penny Musok It was an insensitive comment implying that being gay is choice, which is just ignorance.  Also people in professional sports should always be more heavily scrutinized for their public comments as they have the potential to be influential to so many.

@Antoino Cherry You're about as ridiculous and arrogant as they come. God doesn't "hate" anyone and if you believe so, you might want to actually open your bible again and read it thoroughly before making such a bold statement. It's funny that you call people that believe that way, narrow minded, but what does that make you? Good riddance.

Larkin_Banks

@tlslixta Yeah, I call BS - a) it was not insensitive, and b, if it was, then explain please, WHY ARE HOMOSEXUALS SPECIALLY ENTITLED TO A HIGHER DEGREE OF SENSITIVITY THAN THE REST OF US???  I had probably 12 insensitive things said to me since breakfast yesterday.  Why does Collins get New Times and people like you dropping everything for him?  It bugs the crap out of the rest of us.


ceeezzah7

@tlslixta It was not insensitive at all. He said he didn't understand. If I say that I don't understand why people can't live without their smart phones, that's not insensitive. He simply doesn't understand.

@stayupthetree Cowardice. I bet you will only say that online or somewhere safe.  You can hate me all you want. That's your problem not mine.

@Daniel_Rorick Actually, from the Bible's content, God hates sin, plain and simple. He's listed all the sins he hates throughout. He doesn't hate the sinner though.

@Larkin_Banks @tlslixta You know what?  YOU are ignorant, and I have learned that you're not worth my time to explain to you why I think that is true.  You'll never hear it anyway.  The only thing I can do is pray that you find out that someone in your life is gay.  Maybe after you wrap your small mind around that one when it happens, you'll learn that there are all kinds of other people in the world who deserve love, and to not be judged by people who do not "understand" them.  Also does it occur to you that maybe you shouldn't speak for "the rest of us.?"  I have a feeling that the amount of people who think like you is getting less and less everyday, and that's why an article like this gets printed in the first place!

@ceeezzah7 @tlslixta wow, you actually compared a person's sexual preference to someone's relationship to an inanimate object.

@stayupthetree @ceeezzah7 No you're a coward for standing by the most hate-filled group in the world who has the nerve to to try and fit God in their belief system as if God didn't create all races never making the statement that one was better than the other. All I'm saying is you're no better than an African (Africa-supposedly the cradle of civilization), African-American, Asian, Hispanic, especially Jewish. There's only one place hate comes from and it is not from God. There are always bad people in every race. Lumping all blacks together is inconsistent.
