Marshall Henderson boycotting ESPN because of ‘nasty ass’ Michael Sam coverage
As you have likely heard and/or seen by now, ESPN showed former Missouri linebacker Michael Sam giving his boyfriend a kiss after he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday. We knew the decision to air the embrace would offend some, and we shouldn’t be surprised that former Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson falls under that umbrella.
On Monday morning, Henderson ripped ESPN for showing Sam kissing his boyfriend and expressed concern that his younger brothers had to see it. He called the coverage “sickening.”

Henderson has never been shy about expressing himself on Twitter, so no one should be surprised. Still, his comment is pretty pathetic. You don’t see any outrage when a player is shown kissing his girlfriend or wife after being drafted, so people need to get over it. It’s 2014.
