49ers Gay Ad: It Gets Better Campaign
Why? Well, the 49ers haven’t been saying the nicest things about the gay community lately. Defensive back Chris Culliver said recently that a gay football player would not be welcome in an NFL locker room. (He later apologized for his comments.) Reported INQUISITR...
To make things worse, linebacker Ahmad Brooks and tackle Isaac Sopoaga apparently forgot that they made a pro gay rights video. Brooks and Sopoaga had their memories jogged when they were shown the “It Gets Better” video but both players denied knowing that they had made the video to promote gay rights. Brooks and Sopoaga said they thought that they were making an anti-bullying ad.
And maybe that’s true. One of the goals of the “It Gets Better” is to stop bullying against LGBT youths. But why were they so defensive? Why were they offended at the thought of making a pro gay rights video?
Brooks and Sopoaga didn’t want their name associated with the Gay Rights Campaign and now it looks like the gay rights organization doesn’t want anything to do with the San Francisco 49ers.
