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

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.
