Falcons wide receiver Roddy White apologized Thursday night for making anti-gay comments on Twitter earlier in the day.

@roddywhiteTV said: “OK people I apologize for saying the word gay I know it’s a sensitive subject and a athlete of my stature should not use it.”

So, how did it all begin?

A fan asked White if he would rather lead the league in statistics than win a Super Bowl, and White tweeted: “Would u rather be gay or straight come on u know that answer?”
