Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace might have just set a world record for fastest ignorant response after he allegedly made a homophobic tweet following NBA player Jason Collins’ coming out announcement.
According to TMZ, the tweet, which has since been removed, read:
“All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH (shakin’ my head) …”

Of course, now Mike is backtracking after a morning full of support for Jason–and now, a flood of backlash for him:

Meanwhile, EPSN’s Chris Broussard is taking some heat for standing on his personal convictions. Variety reports Broussard said Collins was “walking in open rebellion to God” and “living in unrepentant sin” after coming out.
