The San Francisco 49ers have made it clear they do not support the anti-gay message cornerback Chris Culliver spread in a radio interview on Tuesday from Media Day.

Culliver said he would not tolerate a gay teammate in comments to radio host Artie Lange and the fallout from this could be considerable given the stage at Super Bowl XLVII.

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris,” the club said in a statement. “There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

Whether or not Culliver is punished for his remarks remains to be seen. He made one of the all-time public relations disasters from a Super Bowl, though. That much is clear.
