Jason Collins is a gay professional basketball player.
And based on this fact, some people on Twitter apparently want the center to be killed.
Among the worst we've seen:
- "Yous a dead f****t talkn on tv Boy."
- Listening to Jason Collins describe his gayness as 'beautiful' makes me wanna puke. And kill him."
- "Jason collins comes out the closet! Kill that biiitttchhhh!!!"
- "Jason Collins should get the death penalty lol how u a 7 foot gay dude lol the west is crazy smh"
Granted, there will always be moronic haters who hide behind a keyboard.
Remember when Selena Gomez received death threats for dating Justin Bieber?
But Collins has handled the adversity very well this week, appearing on Good Morning America; on a Grantland podcast with Bill Simmons; and will soon sit across from Oprah on OWN.
What is your reaction to Collins coming out?
