Former NCAA hoops star doesn't approve of Michael Sam's TV kiss Published: May 12, 2014

What's really going on with Marshall Henderson?

The former Ole Miss basketball star popped off on Twitter with his disapproval of NFL draftee Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on television over the weekend. Sam - the first openly gay football player to get drafted into the NFL - was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round on Saturday.

When Sam was shown kissing his boyfriend in celebration, reactions were mixed, and Henderson - a lightning rod during his time at Ole Miss - was livid on Twitter.

"Boycotting sportscenter til this michael sam nasty (expletive) is off .... My brothers are 7 and 11 and saw that!!! #SICKENING," Henderson's tweet said.

But Henderson replied with an alibi. His tweets were supposedly an experiment he was conducting for a friend.






The University of Mississippi's athletic director responded with tweets Monday distancing the school from Henderson and his views.
