Culliver to Begin Sensitivity Training, Work With LGBT Group


San Francisco 49ers’ cornerback Chris Culliver will begin sensitivity training and work with an LGBT group, according to AP.

Culliver’s homophobic remarks earlier this week lit up a storm in the media, as his anti-gay remarks seemingly appeared everywhere online and on the news.

As a result, Culliver will work with the “Trevor Project,” to learn more about the LGBT community.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Trevor Project said:

We really feel that education about LGBT youth and the challenges they face is a great way to get (Chris) started on the right path, especially since he’s a role model and there are kids all over the country with his poster on their wall, his jersey – his fans that take his words and actions to heart.”

Culliver has since apologized for his remarks via a statement and a one-hour press conference.
