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

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."
