Mike Wallace on Jason Collins: Why Would a Guy Mess With Other Guys?!

Hours after Jason Collins came out as gay, NFL star Mike Wallace earned the distinction of penning the first moronic, borderline homophobic Tweet about it.

In response to the NBA player's admission to SI, Wallace wrote, “All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH (shakin' my head).”

Wallace quickly deleted his tweet and replaced it with an apology.

"Never said that anything was right or wrong I just said I don't understand!! Deeply sorry for anyone that I offended," wrote the 26-year-old Dolphins receiver.

A 12-year NBA veteran, Jason Collins is the first active player in major U.S. team sports to come out as gay. But not everyone was moved by the 34-year-old.

According to Wallace, the dude is just missing out. Just think of all the bikini photos he could be ogling instead of shirtless guys! SMH, right Mike?!

In Wallace's slight defense, women's bodies are more like art, while men's bodies are for utility purposes, to borrow one of our favorite Seinfeld quotes.

It is possible he didn't mean to be critical, but either way, he's a jackass for actually Tweeting that, as if one is "better" or Collins has any choice in the matter.

Do you agree?
