Former Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson’s Michael Sam tweet turned things up a bit on Monday morning. Without much time to settle into the work week, Twitter grabbed ahold of Henderson’s controversial words and ran with them.
First, here’s a look at what Henderson had to say regarding SportsCenter’s coverage of Sam being drafted and then kissing his boyfriend on national TV.
Shortly after Henderson sent the above tweet, he followed with somewhat of an apology and somewhat of an explanation for his feelings. Basically, he’s sorry he’s not sorry.
Now it’s time for the goods. Here are some of the best Twitter reactions. Take it away, folks.
The thing with Marshall Henderson is, well, he’s a dummy.

Well, Marshall Henderson has given himself another 15 minutes again. Opinions are opinions, but ignorance shouldn’t be one of them.

Marshall Henderson doesn’t understand the love between a man and another man. He only understands the love between a man and cocaine.

Marshall Henderson, who does drugs, is concerned a quick peck between two guys is going to ruin his little brother’s lives.

It’s funny because I’d show my kids two guys making out on a loop before I’d show a millisecond of Marshall Henderson game tape.

Explaining Michael Sam to someone would be much easier than explaining Marshall Henderson.

Marshall Henderson is boycotting Sportscenter. There goes the entire target audience for the e-cig commercials.

The kicker here is that Marshall Henderson isn’t even half the role model for kids that Michael Sam is.

I really wish I knew who Marshall Henderson was. Looks like he’ll be using his basket weaving degree from Ole Miss instead of playing in NBA
