SF NFL player Chris Culliver uses Super Bowl event to tell gays to get out of NFL

UPDATE: I just found out that the 49ers suspended a player just last month for comments criticizing the team and the coach. So it’s not just possible for them to suspend Culliver, they have suspended players for their big mouths.  And they went public with the disciplinarian action. So why are the 49ers refusing today to say what disciplinary action if any they took against Culliver? Is it because anti-gay bigotry isn’t as big a deal to the 49ers as being mean to a coach?

UPDATE: The San Francisco 49ers have just issued some bs statement about Chris Cullier’s bigotry – and the statement says pretty much nothing at all:

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

You “reject” them?  That’s nice of you.  And you “addressed” it.  How?  What kind of bs non-answer is this from the San Francisco 49ers?  Their player made incredibly bigoted statements at an official NFL Super Bowl event.  And the 49ers respond with “we’ve addressed it.”  I don’t think so.  What do the 49ers plan to do to address the incredibly bigotry that one of their players showed during an official NFL Super Bowl event?  This wasn’t even an apology.


Chris Culliver, a San Francisco 49ers football player who will be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, used a Super Bowl media event to reportedly tell all gays to get out of the NFL.

Here’s the audio. And unless the audio is a fake – and it comes from Yahoo Sports, so I doubt it – this isn’t “reportedly” any more:

Mind you, this anti-gay bigot plays for SAN FRANCISCO.  Where, as you may have heard, a few gay people live.

If this ass gets to play football on Sunday, then there needs to be an all out war on the NFL.  There’s a reason that there are no openly-gay football players in the NFL, and we’ll know what that reason is if the NFL doesn’t can this bigot.

And, he did it at the Super Bowl’s own media day.  In other words, he did this as a player in the Super Bowl, not as a private citizen (as if that matters when you say that anybody gay needs to quite the NFL now).

From Yahoo Sports:

“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”

The NFL had better kicked Culliver’s fat bigoted ass out of the game.  Is there any doubt that Chris Culliver – or any player – wouldn’t be playing on Sunday had he suggested that all blacks need to quit the NFL, or all Jews?  (

  2. so what he makes this comment … who freaking cares if he doesnt or if he does.. id rather have a person any person about to put and be open about themselves so u as a gay person knows he doesnt like you …

  3. BeccaM says:

    Glad to be of help.

  4. Moderator4 says:

    Thank you, BeccaM. His comment was deleted and he is banned for, as you said, hate-speech.

  5. John says:

    Way to compare the Ku Klux Klan murdering thousands of individuals to an antigay rant on twitter. Im still waiting for your halocaust analogy moderator

  6. John says:

    maybe he was a science major? i know all my science professors harped on the idea of reproduction as the only means of a species survival. Atleast all of mine did

  7. John says:

    All he should of said was that he merely believes in reproduction and passing his genetic legacy on- I mean he can have an opinion right?

  8. Stratplayer says:

    The jerk store called…

  9. karmanot says:

    “the University of South Carolina” I thought Gen. Sherman burned that place to the ground. Maybe that explains something..

  10. karmanot says:

    “his college education” Boy, does that ever open a can of worms.

  11. dakotahgeo says:

    But these “jocks” never, ever THINK before they make fools of themselves!

  12. dakotahgeo says:

    I bet SFBs Chrissy doesn’t mind having “his” licoricestick” in someone else’s assets!

  13. dakotahgeo says:

    Jock Brain Alert!! JBA!!! I had to tutor these brainless jock wonders in college so we could graduate their asses outta the education world. They turned into “dittoheads” as teachers. Dittos refers to the old copy printing machines used for making tests and class notes to pass out to kids in class. If you really want to know why we have a lousy education system in the USA… those jocks who couldn’t teach or coach kissed a$$ to get an advanced Degree in Education Administration, becoming a Secondary Principal or Superintendent, and from there on in, sports took more importance than education or the arts programs. Today we having shining examples of brainless coaches and students waltzing around in the world thinking they’re educated. While these student jokers are exercising their finger muscles, the rest of the worlds’ young people are studying and making great strides to become leaders in their chosen fields world-wide. Now just WHO do you think is going to lead healthier, more abundant lives, and longer lives, and benefiting society the most? Certainly not the JOCKS!!!

  14. BeccaM says:

    It’s for damned sure he didn’t much of anything out of his college education, other than an NFL draft pick contract.

  15. emjayay says:

    From wikipedia:

    His mother, although she would eventually graduate from Temple University, was single and only 16 years old when he was born. Culliver has a brother four years his junior and twin siblings, a boy and a girl, who are eight years younger. In 1996, Culliver’s stepfather and a cousin were shot to death, and his mother was wounded, in a Philadelphia bar fight. In college, a 20-year-old Culliver almost died from complications following routine shoulder surgery.

    So, as one can tell already from his speech and grammar not to mention attitudes, he’s ignorant low class ghetto trash. There’s no mention of his graduating from college, but how did he even get in? Football maybe? Our colleges and universities are of course the envy of the world, except in the many ways that they are a bad joke. Mostly big time college sports related ways.

  16. Jon Stevens says:

    wonder how he’d react if someone told him blacks werent welcomed..how is it that someone who has felt the sting of discrimination is so willing to discriminate?

  17. BeccaM says:

    Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Chris Culliver — a shining example of the finest kind of ignoramus, misogynist, and homophobe to graduate and be drafted from the University of South Carolina.

    Side observation: So Culliver is okay with gays provided he doesn’t know we exist except in theory?

  18. BeccaM says:

    I’ve flagged the moron’s post for moderator attention. Clearly hate-speech.

  19. Ninong says:

    “Soy sauce and underpants” are two things I never thought I would ever see together in the same sentence but that’s what Harris and his boyfriend got into a fight over. They were having dinner together in a Chinese restaurant on their way to the airport. Harris was driving his boyfriend to the airport so that he could fly back to Southern California.

    The boyfriend poured soy sauce all over the bowl of rice that both of them would need to share to go with their entrees. Apparently Harris doesn’t like sauce soy on his rice. LOL

    To make a long story short, 6’7″ Harris, now down to a much slimmer 240 lbs, got into a brawl with his 6’1″, 220-lb boyfriend, fracturing his face — it required surgery and a metal plate to repair. So the boyfriend is suing. I’m sure the restaurant patrons were entertained.

    Oh, I almost forgot the underpants. Harris accused the boyfriend of wearing his underwear, so he attempted to pull down his pants to check and that’s when the fight broke out. LOL

    Harris was an offensive tackle on both the 49ers and the Raiders. He played in the NFL for eight seasons. His attorney issued a statement saying that the two were previously in a romantic relationship but it ended.

    Well, that’s one way to come out of the closet.

  20. karmanot says:

    “what you put in your ass” Have to see the goods first dildo breath.

  21. kurtsteinbach says:

    Black bigotry surprises you? African Americans have been coming out against equal rights for Latinos since the 1960s. Black people have been denying other minorities rights for 50 years. I’m Jewish, and I know Rabbis who marched with Dr. King, so what did the black History teacher try to tell me, that I wasn’t a real Jew because Jews are black. I guess he’s never seen Israeli Jews. African Americans are as bigoted as anybody. Just because they are a minority does not mean that they don’t try to act superior like Chris Culliver. He thimks he’s better than everybody too. He forgets all the people who helped him get where he is, and I ‘ll bet some of them were Jewish, or gay, or white, or Latino…. Rabbi Akiva once said, “If not now, when? If I am not for myself, who will be for me?” However, he also said, and most importantly, “If I am only for myself, who am I?” and what good are you if you are only for yourself?

  22. mike31c says:

    Closet case if there ever was one.

  23. J Sizzle 55 says:

    Who gives a shit what he said? Why do fags make such a big deal when someone opposes them and their status? The only reason why you fags go out of your way to make stories like this go through the roof is to justify what you put in your ass. If you were ok with what you are then shit like this would not bother you!

  24. Carl Gorney says:

    Wouldn’t surprise me, considering his Monday column concerned the Ravens’ player who has been quite vocal in his backing of same-sex rights.

  25. kurtsteinbach says:

    I guess Chris Cully is too stupid to realize that there used to be “no room in sports for black guys either,” but the world and the country grew up and evolved from the lower lifeform segregationist bigots of the 1950s and 60s….

  26. FunMe says:

    How stupid are some athletes not to realize that in 2013 it is no longer acceptable to be spreading hate through words and actions? I guess this NFL guy is so dense he doesn’t understand that you never spread hate in a public forum. Doesn’t he know he represents the team of San Francisco, the city of many gays?

    This idiot Chris Culliver needs a talk with Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo. That will set him “straight”!

    Let’s bring in Chris Kluwe, too. :-)

  27. Diane says:

    Obviously you haven’t paid attention to the 49ers the past two years if you think Culliver isn’t good at his job. He’s superb cornerback in the nickel and dime packages, which means he’s on the field for at least 50% of defensive snaps.

    I’m greatly saddened by his attitude and outburst. But I can’t not root for my team because they have an idiot in the secondary.

  28. karmanot says:

    You go! With you all the way!

  29. rduke says:

    I’m getting real tired of black people discriminating against gays. Especially after standing up for black people my entire life. It’s really getting old.

  30. karmanot says:

    Maybe his down-low ain’t that sweet.

  31. Alberta Gutierrez-Soliz says:

    Exactly! because it was racist, cause a hate crime, etc.

  32. Alberta Gutierrez-Soliz says:

    You, as a black man… Should so remember the times when minorities were held from doing anything that was remotely free. And you as a role model, a black man…. Choose to say this outrageous homophobic comment with such hate and no respect. Of course you will have to apologize. But you can never take back what you have said, EVER! I hope you get benched! Your in SF, with gay supporters to your team and possibly even you. And you say this, why? Because in some sort of ironic way you are now superior! Your team is a supporter for LGBT and “it gets better” for anti gay bullying! If you felt so strongly about a possible gay player in your locker…. Why even sign a deal with SF 49ers you damn money hungry bigot! It is 2013, so wake up! My husband and I are supporters for LGBT, my family and friends are supporters of LGBT. My father and husband don’t take offense to anyone that is different! And you complete moron, speak proper English! You sound so ignorant! LETS CALL and bench him! San Francisco 49ers (NFL Team) Phone: (408) 562-4949. And not let him have a slap on the wrist!

  33. nicho says:

    More like a trained bear.

  34. LeeDorsey says:

    BREAKING: Update at 6:26pm ET on January 30: NBC Sports reports that the San Francisco 49ers responded to Culliver’s comments with the following statement: “The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

  35. Bose says:

    Culliver doesn’t have to wonder whether gay 49ers will wait a decade before coming out, given that the attorney for Kwame Harris, who last played for the 49ers in 2006, has said that Harris is gay in the context of recent assault charges by an ex-boyfriend.

    And, no doubt Harris, at 6’7″ and 240 lb, could have held his own in the locker room if Culliver wanted to challenge his “sweet stuff” one-on-one.

  36. NCMan says:

    Look, I know it’s just Twitter, but seriously…..
    “they be on there PERIOD”
    He can’t conjugate the verb “to be” and doesn’t know the difference between “there”, “they’re” and “their”. Not one of the sharpest tools in the shed.

  37. Skeptical Cicada says:

    The 49ers organization issued a patronizing and insulting non-apology and have done nothing to discipline the stupid bigot.

  38. Skeptical Cicada says:

    Right. The statement was patronizing pablum.

  39. nicho says:

    And if a white player came out and said they should throw all the blacks out of the NFL — what would the response by the team – and the league – be? Yeah, you guessed it. Out on his ass by sunset.

  40. MyrddinWilt says:

    He isn’t even a starter. Third round pick, a weak one at that.

    Kicking him off the team would be the easy way out though. I would prefer that they send him out on an apology tour.

    Like the guy is playing for the SAN FRANCISCO 49’s. Looks like he has not got the idea that he is merely an entertainer.

  41. Skeptical Cicada says:


  42. No they don’t. The team just issued a statement that was a load of crap. No apology. No action taken against Culliver. Nothing. They “reject” his statement. Yeah, that’s nice.

  43. No apology. Nothing at all really. Sounds like the 49ers did absolutely nothing to respond to one of their players using an official NFL Super Bowl event to hate on a minority. Way to go, 49ers. And way to go, NFL. Maybe the Klan can show up at the next Super Bowl event since apparently it’s open season now for hate.

  44. Skeptical Cicada says:

    OMG that fucking 49ers statement was more insulting than the bigotry!!! Where is his goddamn suspension? Oh, is the timing inconvenient? Well, that’s the bigot’s own damn fault.

  45. Don Chandler says:

    “I had explained that a woman’s asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person’s demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan” –mary daly.

    I think Culliver just made a lot of friends but he’ll find out they aren’t really his friends. Momma’s boy needs a good talking to…

  46. usagi says:

    The Niners are trying to thread the needle and hope it blows over. Considering one of the Ravens already said he’s using the opportunity to speak out about marriage equality, I’d say the chances of that approach nil, but frankly the Niners don’t have the most effective media team (hell, if you’re really in the mood to pursue it, John, contact the Ravens for a statement–I’m sure somebody’s going to).

  47. Naja pallida says:

    Statistically speaking, with something like 50 men (I think they can have up to 53?) on each NFL roster, there’s a good probability of at least two gay guys on each and every team. Not even considering coaching, training and equipment staff, who all have free access to the locker room.

    Better watch out Culli, they’re coming for you.

  48. nicho says:

    Who says that repeated brain concussions aren’t bad for you?

    And OT — another mass shooting today in Phoenix. Go Guns!!!

  49. Indigo says:

    He’s confused. Maybe he thinks he’s a gangsta rapper. In any case, he’s obviously a Republican.

  50. Butch1 says:

    I do hope there IS a gay player on this bigot’s team and that he comes out. What’s this punk going to do about it? Does he think he speaks for the whole team? He’s going to find out he’s one lonely homophobic bigot with a big mouth that needs to be shut. If the rest of the team didn’t speak to him ever again until this ass made a public apology, it would be too soon.

  51. Quilla says:

    Ironic, hell, yes. The most vocal anti-gay group are “Bishops” from black congregations who – like Mr. Culliver – are oblivious to their own civil rights struggle. History lessons for all!

  52. karmanot says:

    Consider this: “We don’t got no gay people on the team. This guy is a moron, beyond the subtle discernments of actual ‘thinking.’

  53. rerutled says:

    It is worth remembering that some of his team-mates and coaching staff feel very differently — and I’ll bet they’re slapping him upside the head right about now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4glWjcbAbY

  54. karmanot says:

    Oh boy, don’t mess with gay 49ers.

  55. Carl Gorney says:

    One more thing: Culliver may very well be the exception to the rule; TMZ notes that there are a LOT of Niners team members who do not share his views, and they went public with said remarks. And that includes head coach Jim Harbaugh.

  56. rerutled says:

    Remarkable, that a black American can make such statements without apparent irony. Are the effects of racism are so foreign to him as to in no way touch his thinking? If so, that is something of a victory for African-American equality. If not for LGBT equality, it bears pointing out.

  57. leathersmith says:

    when do we here from Kluwe?

  58. UncleBucky says:

    Hm. I predict that in no time at all Chris Culliver will no longer be in the NFL.

  59. Carl Gorney says:

    John: Send this story to Dave Zirin of The Nation.

    I think he’d be VERY interested in this one…
