Jason Collins Is Receiving Death Threats

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Boston CelticsHaters gotta hate. That’s a lesson that newly out pro athlete Jason Collins is learning first-hand. While there’s been an overwhelmingly positive outpouring of admiration for the former Washington Wizards player’s decision to live his life as an out gay man, there’re naturally narrow-minded people who think he’d be better off dead.

TMZ reports that Collins has received numerous tweets from, let’s call them Twitter cowards, who have sent the following messages:

— “Yous a dead f****t talkn on tv Boy.”
—”Listening to Jason Collins describe his gayness as ‘beautiful’ makes me wanna puke. And kill him.”
— “Jason collins comes out the closet! Kill that biiitttchhhh!!!”
—”First jason collins say he gay.. Now he on espn w lipgloss on  kill him now !!!”
— “Jason Collins should get the death penalty lol how u a 7 foot gay dude lol the west is crazy smh”

They’re probably fans of these two.
