Friday, a San Francisco 49ers gay ad was pulled from the “It Gets Better” website after the two players who starred in it said that they didn’t realize they were making a gay rights commercial.
49ers tackle Isaac Sopoaga and Ahmad Brooks appeared in the ad, but when asked about it while in New Orleans for the Super Bowl they said they thought they did a commercial for anti-bullying and not a commercial to support LGBT youths (even though they specifically mention the LGBT in the ad).
See video below of the San Francisco 49ers gay ad.
The “It Gets Better” ad appeared on their website, but has since been removed. The video can still be seen on YouTube, according to the Inquisitr.
The 49ers were the first NFL team to complete an ad for the “It Gets Better’ organization, but they were also the first to have that ad pulled.
Earlier this week, 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver said that he “wouldn’t welcome a gay player” into their locker room, but later retracted that statement and said that he was sorry and that it’s "not what’s in my heart.”
