Revisionist History: Two 49ers Players Insist They Did Not Appear In ‘It Gets Better’ Video
|by Anonymous||reply 24||02/04/2013|
It was bad enough that San Francisco 49ers homophobe Chris Culliver said earlier this week that he wouldn’t tolerate a gay teammate and then offered a non-apology apology for saying so. Now, two other hate-mongering 49ers have claimed that they didn’t appear in an “It Gets Better” video they clearly were in.
Linebacker Ahmad Brooks and defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga denied to USA Today that they made the video, then when showed the video, claimed they didn’t realize it was to fight the bullying of LGBT youth (even though teammate Donte Whitner specifically identifies “LGBT teens”):

Ahmad Brooks: I didn’t make any video. This is America and if someone wants to be gay, they can be gay. It’s their right. But I didn’t make any video… I don’t remember that. I think if I made a video, I’d remember it. [After being shown the video...] Oh, that. It was an anti-bullying video, not a gay (rights) video.

The interviewer should've asked Brooks on the spot,
"So, do you prefer black dick or white dick? "

All those concussions must be doing damage - they don't even remember where they were.

What they deny is having been in an anti gay bullying video. They were only told it was an anti bullying video and not that it was about anti gay bullying.

R7, see R1.
Then again, the idiot probably didn't know what LGBT means.

Which you state as fact with no evidence. They may be claiming that now, but they also may be lying.

You're probably right. He's not exactly a Rhodes Scholar.

Well, bullying is bullying, no matter who is being bullied.

Tell them that r11, It Gets Better videos can applying to bullying in general, while still being focused on gay youth, as they were intended.

Harvey Milk is long gone and ACT-UP is forgotten. San Francisco gays sit back while members of the 49er team bash them.

I TOLD YOU SO!!!!! When video came out last year I wrote on several gay websites that it is just window dressing. If the NFL or specifically the 49ers were so tolerant of gay people than gay players would have come out by now. Gay people allow heterosexuals to construct an unreality where they are accepting of gay people without any results to prove they are.

Really, what ARE the folks in San Francisco saying about this? It's embarrassing and degrading and offensive.

Pink Wash . . . that's what it's called when some idiot celebrity who votes Republican does a PSA for equality. It does nothing to serve our community, only the celebrity's image.
I'm fuckin' over it, too.

[italic]When told that studies show that the majority of teens who are bullied are harassed over sexual identity issues, Brooks thought for a second.
"I know that. I know that," he said. "Okay, you're right and I'm wrong. Are you from one of those New York newspapers?"[/italic]
If Brooks thought for an entire second, that was probably the longest thought the moron ever had.

[italic]Sopoaga, too, denied making the video, even while teammate Will Tukuafu, who overheard the question, tried to refresh his memory.
"Yeah, you made that video, remember?" Tukuafu said.
"No," Sopoaga said. "I never went. And now someone is using my name."[/italic]
After being shown the video, Sopoaga refused to comment.
