Ugly America Responds To Michael Sam Kissing A Man On ESPN

Illustration for article titled Ugly America Responds To Michael Sam Kissing A Man On ESPN

Michael Sam had to wait until the final eight picks to get drafted and when the Rams finally called, it was an emotional moment. ESPN cameras were there and filmed him crying and hugging and kissing another man, presumably his boyfriend. It was moving and powerful, and the ignorant hated it.

There's nothing new about a draftee celebrating with a significant other, or cameras focusing on her. Hell, sometimes they are openly drooled over; Lauren Tannehill almost broke Twitter when she showed up during the draft. It's not even the first time someone's been drafted and kissed his girlfriend. But since it's two gay men kissing and embracing, it's too much for people (even the ones who say they aren't homophobic!).
