Radio host Artie Lange played a media day interview with Super Bowl-bound San Francisco 49er cornerback Chris Culliver on his show Tuesday, and asked Culliver about the topic of gays in the NFL. Culliver expressed a deep distaste for the whole idea, Yahoo Sports reports:
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”
When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”
