Speculation or not, going out and essentially shouting that you're not gay just comes off as you viewing being gay as a totally negative thing! It's not offensive to be mistaken for a gay man at all! If you need to clear it up, do it modestly! Plus you totes were carrying around a dude while shirtless on your vacay… LOLz!
Here's what Kerry said:
"Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation.
"I am not gay."
Cool story, bro!
If you had turned out to be gay, great! If you're not gay, that's also great too! Everyone is great regardless of their sexuality, there's no dire need to clear anything up!
"The shots were taken during a past vacation in a casual environment with my entire business team."
Phew! We can't imagine anyone being gay in a casual environment with an entire business team! We guess that's proof! Ha!
Regardless of his reaction to the reports, he wants everyone to know that he'll be supportive of gay players in the NFL or any other sport, but he's still TOTALLY NOT ONE OF THEM:
"I know a lot of people are recently talking about athletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as wish those individuals comfort."
Mountains out of molehills! Everyone's cool with you either way, Kerry! It's all good!
