Stanford’s Football Coach Says He Never Screamed ‘Faggot,’ And GLAAD Will Probably Believe Him

stanfordfaggot

What to do when you’re Stanford’s college football coach and you get called out for screaming “faggot” on national television? You deny everything!

Stanford University’s football coach Jim Harbaugh tells GLAAD that the implied captions in that YouTube clip circulating got his words wrong. “It did not come out of my mouth. It would not come out of my mouth. It’s not in my heart to ever say that.”

Alas, the clip has been yanked off YouTube (curious, because it was posted by Queerty reader Chris, and not Stanford or Harbaugh), so it’s hard to revisit the issue — but the game was broadcast on television network ABC, so it’s not like the shot is gone forever.

Either way, we fully expect GLAAD to take Harbaugh at his word and tell America everything is okay, because that’s how this organization operates.

      Yeah, so, I left a comment saying this on the original post, and I’ll say it again.

      I actually watched the video (only one other person who left a comment on the other post caught this as well)… for what it’s worth, I couldn’t bloody well actually HEAR him says “faggot”.. there was just a speech bubble inserted by the YouTube author saying that. Maybe my hearing is bad, so if anyone listens to the video and still thinks he said “faggot,” I’d appreciate a response. Instead of people watching the video, there was a flood of comments on the last post talking about how horrible ABC is for not censoring something that may as well have been non-existent in the first place.

      “Alas, the clip has been yanked off YouTube (curious, because it was posted by Queerty reader Chris, and not Stanford or Harbaugh)”

      What’s curious about it? Probably ABC complained about a copyright violation. I could see Jim Harbaugh or Stanford
      complaining as well if whatever he said wasn’t transcribed
      accurately, and in No 1, Karanis mentioned that he couldn’t
      pick out the word while listening to the soundtrack.
