Miami Dolphin player fined, removed from team activities just for disapproving of gay NFL kiss

Powered by Topple

The media celebration of the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL drew the ire of a Miami Dolphins player, who quickly learned that expressing an opinion in the age of Obama comes with a steep price.

Michael Sam was drafted in the seventh round on Saturday by the St. Louis Rams team, with the sports network ESPN broadcasting the fabulous moment, to include a big smooch between Sam and his cake-covered boyfriend.

While it is likely the first time in NFL history that a seventh round pick drew such attention, the image of Sam and his boyfriend soon inundated social media.

Not to be outdone, Sam himself re-tweeted the image:

In all fairness, the media overkill could be described as nauseating, and Miami Dolphins defensive back Don Jones expressed that point of view by tweeting “OMG” and “horrible,” according to Twitchy:

With gay intolerance being what it is in America, such discretion is simply not allowed — either openly approve of the gay lifestyle or keep your mouth shut.

And it didn’t take the politically correct Miami Dolphins long to react, issuing a statement Sunday announcing Jones “has been fined an undisclosed amount and excused from all team activities until such time that he undergoes and completes educational training.”

That’s right, a re-education camp!

Needless to say, many on Twitter went nuts, as documented by Twitchy:
