Jason Collins gained nationwide notoriety when he recently announced that he is gay. Collins went from being a relatively unknown professional basketball player to being pretty identifiable in a matter of weeks. Naturally, Collins’ fame has created a lot of confusion for his twin brother, Jarron, who is straight.
Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel decided to help solve that problem by giving Jarron a great T-shirt during the brothers’ interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday. Collins held up the shirt with a big smile and received laughs from Kimmel and his brother upon receiving the shirt at the end of the interview. He was even spotted wearing the shirt out in public. Jarron might have to continue wearing the shirt because he told Kimmel someone approached him at a urinal recently and asked if he was Jason.
In the interview with Kimmel, Jarron talked about when his brother broke the news to him about being gay. He said that he and his wife had been trying to set up Jason with women and totally missed all the “red flags” about the situation, such as Jason always finding a reason for why it didn’t work.
