Michael Sam Quits Football, Promptly Slandered

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by the NFL, has quit football. The former 7th round pick who last played in the Canadian Football League is citing mental issues for his retirement. 

“The last 12 months have been very difficult for me, to the point where I became concerned with my mental health. Because of this I amgoing to step away from the game at this time. I thank the Alouettes for this opportunity and hope to be back on the field soon,” tweeted Sam.

Of course, Twitter wasted no time dragging Sam for calling it quits. Some of the slander is rooted in homophobia—y’all really need to let that hurt go. A lot of it is pure comedic pile on and there are also those defending him.
