The 49ers cornerback apologized for his anti-comments on Jan. 29, but all may not be forgiven for the NFL player.
Chris Culliver shamed his team, the San Francisco 49ers, when he bashed the gay community in an interview with Artie Lange on Jan. 29, claiming that gays are not welcome in their locker room. So far, the 49ers have not said if Chris will play in Sunday’s Super Bowl game against the Baltimore Ravens on Feb. 3, according to TMZ.
Chris’ Interview With Artie Lange
“I don’t do the gay guys. I don’t do that,” Chris, 24, told Artie Lange on his radio show Jan. 29, via Yahoo! Sports, when asked if a gay teammate would be welcomed in the locker room.
When asked if there were any gay players on the 49ers, Chris said, “We don’t have any gay guys on the team. They gotta get up outta here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.”
And if someone were gay, Chris suggests, “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”
The 49ers & Chris Release Statements
The 49ers quickly released a statement Jan. 30, saying, “The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”
Chris released his own statement on the evening of Jan. 30, when he said, “The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience.”
Reza Farahan Is Pissed Off At Chris Culliver
One person who’s not amused? Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan, who hopes the 49ers LOSE at the Super Bowl because of Chris. “I hope you guys lose ’cause you’re a douchebag!” Reza told TMZ as he whipped his middle fingers in the air.
He added, “Don’t talk s**t about the gays motherf**ker! 49ers are going down!!!”
