A Tim Tebow parody account is sure to raise some eyebrows and cause controversy with this Tweet commenting on the Michael Sam story.
Sam, a Missouri Tigers defensive lineman, announced this week that he is gay, just ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft. Sam is being heralded for his bravery, and is featured on the cover of the latest edition of Sports Illustrated.
The fake Tebow account has some 35,000 followers, and when we last checked, this individual Tweet had over 3,200 favorites and over 5,000 retweets.
To our knowledge, the real Tim Tebow has made no comments on the issue, but that won’t keep his fans from weighing in on the controversial topic.
