The SEC Defensive Player of the Year Michael Sam came out publicly as Gay on Sunday night sparking conversations on him possibly being the first gay player in the NFL once he’s drafted. Of course, talk of his draft stock falling immediately followed the announcement due to the “controversy” in having an openly gay player.
The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, known for pointing out hypocrisies around the world, quickly jumped on the “controversy” of a possible future gay NFL player with a hilarious segment called, “Friday Night Rights”.
My favorite sarcastic line from Stewart was: “Its as though sexual orientation has nothing to do with physical strength.”
I love when black gay men break down the stereotypes of what it means to be black and gay.
Stewart goes on to hilariously roast and pick apart the detractors and doubters of Michael Sam’s chance of being drafted now that he is openly gay to the public.
