The cover of ESPN’s latest body issue featuring Dallas Cowboy’s running back Ezekial “Zeke” Elliott has a number of homophobes clutching their pearls. It seems the guys can’t seem to handle his naked body.
On Monday, ESPN tweeted:
You can now add "cover boy" to Zeke's resume. pic.twitter.com/DSS8r0Jzef

Within minutes, insecure straight dudes started having panic attacks over it:
You can now add "Homosexual" to his resume…

Thankfully, plenty of other people were quick to point out the absurdity of it all…
Just because it turned you on doesn't make him gay.

Some folks are scared & have discomfort on looking at the naked body (especially of the same sex) even as an art form. Oh well, not me!
