Time, place make Culliver’s anti-gay comments worse

By staff

Calling his comments “ugly” and vowing to learn from the experience, 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver apologized Thursday for anti-gay remarks he made earlier in the week.

“That’s not what I feel in my heart,” said Culliver, who two days earlier told a comedian during Super Bowl media day that he would not welcome a gay teammate into the locker room.

“I don’t do the gay guys, man. I don’t do that,” Culliver told comedian Artie Lang. “Ain’t got no gay people on the team. They gotta get up outta here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.”

The 49ers issued two statements denouncing those comments – including once from Culliver – before he apologized in front of reporters Thursday.

In the video below, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby weigh in on Culliver’s comments, specifically how the timing and the city he represents make them even worse.
