49ers CB Chris Culliver lashes out against homosexuals

National Football Post

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo is using his spotlight before Super Bowl XLVII to promote same-sex marriage.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver is taking the spotlight and making it clear he doesn’t have any desire to share a locker room with a gay teammate.

Culliver, in an interview with radio show host Artie Lange on Tuesday, said that gays would not be welcome in the locker room.

I don't do the gay guys man," Culliver said, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah ... can't be ... in the locker room man. Nah."

Culliver, the third cornerback on defense and a core special teams contributor, went on to say that if a teammate was gay, he should keep it private for 10 years after he retires.

The timing for Culliver’s remarks would be poor at any moment. That he made the comments from the Super Bowl is especially damning. Earlier this week, former 49ers offensive lineman Kwame Harris, who also spent time with the Oakland Raiders, appeared in court on charges of domestic violence against a male partner.
