ESPN actually recently did a report on Michael Sam that they are now regretting. This aired on television, but it was a strange report about his showering habits that should have never been put out there. On Wednesday, Reuters shared how the network is sharing that they wish they had never done this report at all.

Michael Sam is the first openly gay man in the NFL. They recently shared on their channel that Sam doesn't take showers right away and he waits. This is to keep everyone else from feeling uncomfortable. Honestly that news should have never been out there.

ESPN spoke out and said, "ESPN regrets the manner in which we presented our report. Clearly yesterday we collectively failed to meet the standards we have set in reporting on LGBT-related topics in sports." Chris Long went to Twitter saying that everyone is over it but ESPN. It sounds like his teammates just want it all dropped.

The Network will think twice before they report something like this again. It came up when they were talking about if Michael Sam fits in.
