49ers are the first NFL team to record anti-gay bullying video

According to Mathew Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the San Francisco 49ers have become the first NFL team to film an anti-gay bullying video.

“The 49ers followed the baseball Giants by becoming the first team in their league to record an It Gets Better video condemning anti-gay violence and bullying. The minute-long segment features defenders Donte Whitner, Ahmad Brooks, Isaac Sopoaga and Ricky Jean Francois.

“The video, which was filmed in the spring, came about after fan Sean Chapin gathered more than 16,000 signatures on Change.org that encouraged the 49ers to become the first NFL team to make one,” wrote Barrows.
