Not long after Michael Sam became the first openly gay player drafted to the NFL, some made clear his reaction was not welcome, CNN reports.

Shortly after learning of his selection by phone, a visibly emotional Sam turned to his boyfriend and kissed him.



Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones expressed his disapproval, tweeting "horrible" and "OMG" after the kiss was aired. He has since deleted those comments.

But the Dolphins responded quickly, ordering Jones to pay an undisclosed fine and barring him from team activities until he finishes "training for his recent comments made on social media."
