It was inevitable the moment that Michael Sam announced that he was gay that there were bound to be negative responses by other football players. Case in point: Mississippi State tight end Rufus Warren’s comments regarding Michael Sam’s announcement.
Warren took to his Twitter account to both congratulate Sam on the courage it took to make such an announcement and to let Sam know that he “looks down” on players that are gay.
Michael Bonner of the Clarion Ledger was able to grab the tweets before Warren deleted them.
