Chris Culliver is an NFL football player for the San Francisco 49ers.
He also recently spouted out a bunch of homophobic remarks regarding gay football players in the locker room.
"The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience."
Hmm… does he sound sincere??
So, he has homophobic thoughts in his head but not in his heart?
Like he'd love the person but still hate that they're gay?
Culliver's public relations rep said:
"Chris is very apologetic for any harm caused to anyone. His intent was not that at all. He is one who celebrates the differences of others. All of this was just a big mistake. It was interpreted wrong."
We don't know how you can misinterpret him straight up saying that if gay football players were on his team they'd need to get out the locker room.
Either way, we truly hope he is sincere and has had a change of heart.
