Former Ole Miss basketballer Marshall Henderson says his derogatory Tweet was to help a friend gather information.

“My stance on gay athletes is irrelevant,” Henderson told ESPN by phone. “The whole reason we chose to do this is because my friend is gay. If it was wrong for me to do it, so be it.”

Henderson tweeted the following on Monday morning, two days after Sam was taken by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh and final round of the NFL draft:

“Boycotting sportscenter til this michael sam nasty [expletive, expletive] is off …. My brothers are 7 and 11 and saw that!!! #SICKENING”

An hour later, Henderson followed with tweets explaining his rationale for the initial comment.

    Smells like BS.

    Henderson’s explanation is far more plausible than “the Benghazi attack was a reaction to a youtube video”

      With birth certificates, death panels, child re education camps, and skewed poll/Romney landslides so passe, what is the dedicated Obama-hater to do?

    Just conducting a “study,” eh?
    Reminds me of the time I told a cop, “Honest, officer, I was just walking along minding my own business when I looked down and found these drugs just sitting there on the sidewalk where children could get them and I was on my way to the po-lice station to turn them in when you pulled me over….”

    – didn’t work for me, either.

      LOL good story at least. I dunno why the cops wouldnt buy that?
