Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart.Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience." The 49ers have to comment on any sort of disciplinary actions that may be brought upon Culliver, but considering he is such an important member of the team, it will probably not affect his game time.After all of the issues arising from the Super Bowl bound 49ers and the issue of gay rights, the "It Gets Better" organization has decided to drop their ad featuring the team members and have begun a disassociation with the team.During a Super Bowl media day interview recently, 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made some very homophobic statements during a radio interview.When asked if he has ever been approached by gay football player, Culliver went on a sort of rant against the culture and how he believed a gay athlete would not be appropriate in the locker rooms.After these recent comments (obviously) caused some bad press for the cornerback and the San Francisco 49ers, Culliver released the following apology: "The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel.
But due to some controversial statements and actions of some team members, the organization has pulled the 49ers' ad.
The ad has been taken off the "It Gets Better" website, but can still be viewed below.
Two team members featured in the ad have recently said that they did not know that they were participating in a gay rights advertisement.
Linebacker Ahmad Brooks and tackle Isaac Sopoaga were under the impression that the video that they were appearing in was for an anti-bullying campaign.
The confusion could be valid since one of the main stances of the "It Gets Better" campaign is to stop the bullying of LGBT youths.
