Just one day after NFL draft prospect Michael Sam made us all proud by publicly coming out, Kent State wrestler Sam Wheeler took to Twitter to offer his poetic commentary.
“I can’t even watch Sports Center today cause all they are talking about is Marcus Smart [sic] or that fag from Mizzou…”, he tweeted, following up with this little gem later — “O geez I got all these fag boys mad at me now.”
Wheeler’s comments have landed him in hot water with school officials, earning him a suspension from competing. You have to wonder if he feels like it was worth it to get his uninspired hate speech into the Twitterverse.
His coach had this to say: “I was surprised and offended by what I read on Twitter. I have spoken to Sam personally, and while he is remorseful, he will be suspended indefinitely while we determine the best course of action moving forward.”
Can’t leg lock your way out of this one, Sam.
And we don’t need to make the obvious leap that that he protests too much. But if he ever did hook up with Michael Sam, he could be known as Sam Sam.
