Vikings running back Adrian Peterson recently came out and stated that he doesn’t believe in gay marriage. Now he says if he wouldn’t be comfortable taking a shower with a gay teammate.
The star Minnesota Vikings running back told The Oklahoman on Monday that having a gay teammate “really wouldn’t bother me that much.”
He, however, admitted to the newspaper that having to take showers with a gay teammate would make him uncomfortable.
“Simple things, as far as showers and things like that, you know, of course, anyone would be uncomfortable. But you know, I’m a grown man. There are things that I can deal with. I’m comfortable in my skin,” he told the newspaper.
“I’ll still high-five them. Pat them on the butt when he’s doing good, and go on about my business.”
I don’t have a problem with Peterson’s comments because it’s his opinion and he has a right to it. I just find it funny that the main stream media hasn’t made a stink about them like they did with Mike Wallace’s gay comments.
The national media has their favorites and it’s even more obvious right now.
