Dan Savage, co-founder of the It Gets Better project, said late Thursday he has “removed the (San Francisco) 49ers ‘It Gets Better’ video” from the project’s website after two of the team’s player who appeared in the video said they were unaware they were participating in a project to support LGBT youth. Just hours after 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver faced the media to apologize for anti-gay remarks he made on a radio broadcast, linebacker Ahmad Brooks and defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga — approached by USA Today — “strangely denied” appearing in the video that was released by the 49ers last August.
