A former NFL player went on a homophobic tirade on Twitter, accusing the NFL and the NBA of an “effeminate agenda.”

Larry Johnson was a running back for several NFL teams from 2003 to 2011, setting NFL records that still stand today. But he has come back in the public spotlight, now for his noxious views on LGBTQ people.

He tweeted that there is an “effeminate agenda” in the NFL and NBA, which is led by the Free Masons, to indoctrinate straight people, for the benefit of LGBTQ people.

He cited examples that were… strange. He accused NBA players of dressing like 16-year-old boys and losing too much weight, an NFL player doing a commercial for a pastry shop, and players doing a fashion show. He also called out Michael Sam, the first out gay player drafted in the NFL, because one gay man among hundreds of straight men is just too much for Johnson to handle.

He also called out the color pink itself.

Of course, he had to say that he doesn’t hate gay people. His understanding is just beyond what us mere mortals can comprehend, so how dare anyone accuse him of homophobia.

He later tweeted that he would “love to see the LGBTQ community band together” to fight “the defects of your own community, pedopheliac Priests and politicians.”

Because it’s now LGBTQ people’s fault that there is child abuse in the Catholic church, a homophobic institution that LGBTQ people were protesting years before many of the major sex abuse scandals got press attention.

Former NFL player Ryan Russell came out as bisexual this week and said that it’s a problem that the mainstream professional men’s sports leagues have no out players. With possible teammates like Johnson, though, it’s not hard to understand why.

Johnson has been arrested six times since 2003, five times for assault on women, including strangling his ex-girlfriend. He was also arrested once for beating a man in a club and cutting him with a bottle.
