On Sunday night, Michael Sam came out as gay.
Assuming he gets drafted in May, the former Missouri defensive end will become the first openly homosexual player to suit up in the NFL.

Michael Sam father has failed. Fuck all his accomplishments, records, and etc.. yo sons a faggot.@_TreyMal
Along similarly depressing lines, a series of racist Tweets were posted soon after Coca-Cola played a heartfelt commercial during this month's Super Bowl.
People can just totally suck sometimes, can't thy?
