The American Family Association president is upset that Michael Sam will see naked “beefcakes” in the shower.

Football player Michael Sam made history in May when he was drafted by the St Louis Rams, a few months after publicly coming out.

Earlier this week, former Colts coach Tony Dungy said he wouldn’t have signed Sam, because he “wouldn’t want to deal with all of it”.

AFA president Tim Wildmon has today leapt to Dungy’s defence, claiming he is worried Sam will be able to see “all that beefcake” in the shower.

He wrote: “By the way, having been a sports reporter for a few years I’ve been in many football locker rooms where the players walk around naked or half-naked, changing clothes and going in and out of the showers.

“Putting a man like Sam, who says he is sexually attracted to men, in with all that beefcake seems unfair to the straight players and a distraction to Sam.

“Would you put a heterosexual man in the locker room/showers with all the female cheerleaders?

“The fact that [Tony Dungy] is in the crosshairs of the PC Gestapo over this comment is chilling to free speech and free thinking.”
