On Monday morning, Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson became the latest to rip ESPN’s coverage of Michael Sam’s draft day reaction by going on a homophobic rant. Apparently, Henderson is worried about all of the “sickening” interaction two people in love share, which can hurt innocent eyes.

Sadly, it was not that surprising to see Henderson go on the rant, but then things took a very interesting turn.

Henderson didn’t exactly apologize for his comments, but he did give a very bizarre explanation.
