Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is putting the team on blast for his release, saying his vocal support of pro-gay causes is why he was cut.

Ever since he was let go after the 2012 season, he's been asked if he feels his outspokenness on marriage equality was the reason, or one of them.

He said he wasn't sure, as he wasn't present in those management meetings, but said he'd write about his experiences with the Vikings someday.

Thursday was that day. Kluwe wrote for Deadspin a piece titled "I Was An NFL Player Until I Was Fired By Two Cowards And A Bigot," and it's compelling.

Kluwe, 32 is straight, and married. No active NFL player has come out, as we know from the recent Aaron Rodgers gay rumors (which Rodgers denied).

But Kluwe believes strongly in gay rights, and says it cost him his career.

"I honestly don't know if my activism was the reason I got fired," Kluwe writes, looking back at the events. "However, I'm pretty confident it was."

He blames a trio of "cowards, former coach Leslie Frazier, general manager Rick Spielman and special teams coach Mike Priefer, for the dismissal.

Kluwe also writes that he wants to make sure Priefer never gets another coaching job again. Here are some of the accusations made by Kluwe:

Upon her return, he had passed away.

A classically trained actor and poet, Avery grew up in Atlantic City, N.J., where he was raised by a single mother, according to CNN and IMDB.

He served in the Navy during the Vietnam War and first appeared on screen as a dancer in an uncredited role in the 1980 classic The Blues Brothers.

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry is in hot water for making jokes about Mitt Romney's adopted, African-American grandchild on the air last weekend.

The comments came during a segment in which a roster of comedians were riffing on notable photos from the past year, and things went off the rails.

A photo of the Romney family with Mitt's latest grandchild, Kieran Romney, who is adopted and African-American, on Mitt's knee, sparked laughter.

“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same,” sang out Pia Glenn, one of Harris-Perry’s guests on the show.

Harris-Perry herself said she would like to see the “gorgeous” child and North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, get married some day.

“Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?” she said.

Sarah Massey, a 33-year-old Chicago woman, is making headlines for possessing world's biggest butts (at seven FEET wide), and she is proud of it.

Massey reportedly receives disability checks due to limited mobility, once cracked a toilet seat due to her girth, and struggles to fit in doors or use seatbelts.

And yet, she says she's happy with who she is: "I used to be ashamed, but now I hold my head high ... I want to show the world I am proud to be me."

Somewhere, Maria Kang is prepping her next Facebook tirade.

While it's commendable when a person is comfortable with whatever size they are, Sarah Massey doesn't seem like she's in particularly good shape.

Not that that's her fault whatsoever, if you hear her tell it.

"At school I was teased and called Dump Truck Butt by other kids, but the condition is hereditary, there's nothing I can do about it," Massey says.

"I carry this weight with me all the time, everywhere I go."

"It’s definitely not fake. Big booties are just in my blood."

Tracy Waters, a 34-year-old Ohio woman, was arrested after she received some terrible Christmas gifts from her husband Dave and set fire to his truck.

What did she get, exactly, that was so bad?

“He gave me a slow-cooker and these red nylon crotchless panties with a push-up bra,” Waters told police. “The bra had tassels for f--k sake. Tassels.”

'Tis the season.

Tracy Waters Mug Shot

Police charged Tracy Waters with arson, assault with a weapon (a 4-gallon ceramic crock pot with corn-on-the-cob pattern) and swearing in public.

This may even top the South Carolina woman arrested for assault with a deadly squirrel after her man failed to bring home beer Christmas morning.

It's also the second arrest this month we've reported on that involved swearing in public, with THG mug shot queen Jenelle Evans being the first.

As for Waters' husband? He was taken aback by her holiday reaction.

This ad from LG, released earlier this fall, takes the idea of going viral by pranking people to sell products to a new level. Jimmy Kimmel would approve.

The brand’s new 84-inch ultra-realistic HD TV is so realistic that it could pass for a window in a manager's office as he's interviewing job applicants.

Following a series of shots showing workers tucking tiny cameras in spots around the office and installing the big-screen unit, the show is ready to begin.

As the applicants filter into the office and the interviews get underway, the room begins to shake as a giant fireball appears on the window / TV screen.

The video then cuts to people freaking out. Staged or not, the ad went viral for a reason. It's awesome. Watch the full clip below if you haven't seen it ...

Rumors that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is gay and has broken up with boyfriend Kevin Lanflisi - who doubled as Rodgers' "personal assistant" - are making the rounds on the Interwebs.

According to Lanflisi's Twitter account, something's definitely going down with his love life. But is it his relationship with Rodgers that he's referring to?

In September, Kevin Lanflisi tweeted:

Supposedly, Rodgers was one of the four gay NFL players who were set to come out over the summer, but the football star backed out at the last minute.

This alleged turn of events seems to have hurt his relationship with Lanflisi on both a personal and professional level.

Andrew Frey, a 37-year-old Oregon resident, got so high on methamphetamine that he says he had no recollection of events that took place this weekend.

Those events involved getting wasted out of his mind, going to a bar to masturbate, getting tased multiple times and fighting multiple police officers.

Frey told Marion County Sheriff's officers that he took the drug Saturday. On Sunday, he reportedly refused to pay a locksmith he called to his home.

He then headed to a local shopping center where an employee escorted him off the property, and finally to Iggy's Bar & Grill, where took a seat.

After he exposed himself to a bartender, he started to masturbate. Hard.

The holidays. Always bringing out the tension in relationships.

Who among us hasn't gotten so mad at a significant other for not bringing beer home from the store that they stabbed them with a squirrel at this time of year?

Are we right, people?

Helen Ann Williams, 44, was arrested for doing just that. She was just waiting for her boyfriend to come back from the store on Christmas morning with beer.

You know, because everybody needs to start boozing early on December 25. Their relationship/personal issues clearly run deeper than a single squirrel.

The guy was unsuccessful on his trip to procure the sweet, domestic macro-brewed nectar of the gods, because it was Christmas after all and stores are closed.

That's a valid excuse, but he paid the price for getting her hopes up.
