Marshall Henderson claims anti-gay Michael Sam tweets were a social experiment

New, comments

The former Ole Miss basketball player tweeted that he was "boycotting sportscenter" because ESPN showed Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend. Then he said his tweets were part of a social experiment. This is all very dumb.

Here are Marshall Henderson's initial tweets.
This was not a popular opinion on Twitter.
Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork responded, too.
Then Marshall Henderson offered a bizarre explanation.
Yeah, about that ...
I supposed it _is_ possible that Marshall Henderson sent these tweets for a psychology experiment. Or he might just want to say, "Hacked."
