After Anti-Gay Comments, Chris Culliver Will Volunteer at LGBT Group

Amazing how a little slip of the tongue can get you into so much trouble.

Following his gay rant/apology, his PR guy, Theodore Palmer, said that 49ers CB Chris Culliver will be volunteering at "The Trevor Project", a LGBT group based in San Francisco.

Earlier this week, Culliver was asked about his opinion on having gay teammates, and his response caused a major controversy.

"I don't do the gay guys man. I don't do that," Culliver said.

Making matters worse, he continued, "No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do."

Of course, the 49ers immediately released a statement criticizing Culliver's comments, and generally to calm everyone's tits.

"The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community."

Although Culliver's comments were not P.C., per se, I can almost guarantee a lot of people feel the same way but just don't want to say it. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, in my opinion.
