According to Feb. 1, 2013 reports, a San Francisco 49ers gay rights ad has been pulled by “It Gets Better Campaign”.
The San Francisco 49ers became the first NFL team to tape a gay rights ad and was also the first such team to get their ad being pulled off soon by the campaign.
Reports state that the San Francisco 49ers have not been talking good about gay community. Recently, 49ers defensive back Chris Culliver commented that they wouldn’t like a gay football player in a NFL locker room. However, he later apologized for his comment.
In another incident, which made things worse, Ahmad Brooks and Isaac Sopoaga denied having made any gay rights ad for “It Gets Better Campaign”.
They apparently forgot about the gay rights video made by their team and also denied having any knowledge about the ad being made for gay rights promotion. Rather they thought it was an anti-bullying ad.
It seems the players were not interested in getting associated with the gay rights campaign and now the organization is not looking interested in having anything to do with the San Francisco 49ers.
