The Dolphins issued a statement Monday responding to remarks posted by wide receiver Mike Wallace on Twitter, with the club saying it believes “in a culture of inclusiveness and respect, and any statements to the contrary are in no way acceptable to our organization.”
Per NBC News and other media outlets, Wallace reportedly wrote the following on Twitter before deleting the messages: “All these beautiful women in the [world] and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH…”
Earlier Monday, NBA player Jason Collins disclosed he was gay in a Sports Illustrated cover story.
Wallace later wrote the following: “Never said anything was right or wrong I just said I don’t understand!! Deeply sorry for anyone that I offended[.]“
Here’s the Dolphins’ statement in full:
“Mike Wallace has apologized for his comments, and we have addressed the matter with him. Mike’s comments do not reflect the views of the Miami Dolphins. We believe in a culture of inclusiveness and respect, and any statements to the contrary are in no way acceptable to our organization.
“We will address the entire team about our policy of inclusion and make sure they all understand the importance of respecting individual choices.”
