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.
That's cause for celebration and admiration, right? Wrong, according to some outspoken morons on Twitter.
Consider some of the backlash against Sam in the form of the following Tweets, but consider yourself warned: These contain strong language... and may impart on you a desire to flee the planet:

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.
