More mess from the 49ers.
Linebacker Ahmad Brooks and nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga (child, these position names are too much) must have memory loss for being hit in their heads too much. These fools claim they were never in "It Gets Better" video.
The players were asked about the video Thursday because teammate Chris Culliver made derogatory remarks about gays in a media day interview with radio personality Artie Lange.Their PR folks will be working overtime this weekend.
At first, Brooks and Sopoaga, approached by USA TODAY Sports, denied being part of the project.
"I didn't make any video," Brooks said. "This is America and if someone wants to be gay, they can be gay. It's their right. But I didn't make any video."
When told USA TODAY Sports had seen the video and he was in it, Brooks replied, "I don't remember that. I think if I made a video, I'd remember it."
He was shown the video on an iPhone.
"Oh, that. It was an anti-bullying video, not a gay (rights) video," he said.
When told that studies show that the majority of teens who are bullied are harassed over sexual identity issues, Brooks thought for a second.
"I know that. I know that," he said. "Okay, you're right and I'm wrong. Are you from one of those New York newspapers?"
