The former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has become a celebrity overnight. On Thursday the former NFL punter wrote an open letter and people have been talking. The letter was published Thursday on Deadspin.com, and points out that the punter might have been released from the Vikings due to his support of gay marriage. The letter was drafted on April 30, but the public’s first view was today. The punter knew he would be rattling cages as he posted a very tough message about the coming news piece on Twitter.
“Welp, crossed the Rubicon today. Sometimes life ain't pretty, folks. So it goes,” tweeted Chris Kluwe from his official Twitter account. The NFL star might really have turned some heads with his latest allegations.
The Minnesota Vikings have responded to the allegations and deny there was anything but the game considered when they made a decision to part ways. Now the two sides have people choosing who to believe.
Only a day ago the Rose Bowl Parade 2014 coverage was criticized as the gay couple married on the float was cut out of broadcast. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation float had Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair exchanged vows New Year's Day, but most viewers around the country didn't see moment. According to CBS 2 News on Wednesday night, some TV stations turned cameras away for this portion of the parade.
The intriguing part of the gay marriage debate is the continued discussion people are having on the great lengths of censorship about the issue. Watch on TV, hearing from a coworker or just reading a Twitter message about gay marriage shouldn't be cause for alarm.
