He’s right…it was gay, so was his apologising

Just because some snowflakes get upset and outraged doesn’t mean that people should apologise.

All Black Lima Sopoaga posted this picture and comment on Instagram:

Cue the snowflake outrage, even though it was totally gay:

All Blacks’ first five-eighth Lima Sopoaga has been quick to apologise for a homophobic comment he made on social media.

Sopoaga’s Highlanders team-mate Malakai Fekitoa posted a photo of Fekitoa being kissed by two of his team-mates on Instagram and Sopoaga commented “hah gayyyyyyyyyyye”.

That may have been a reference to the internet meme which spawned from the television show Community, but it didn’t go down well.

Sopoaga deleted the off-the-cuff comment and apologised immediately once he realised he may have upset people.

People were upset…maybe..so what.

“Sorry to anyone who took offence to my comment above,” Sopoaga wrote.

“I’m not homophobic but understand how my comment may have been interpreted that way. Chur have a nice day.”

He might not be homophobic, but he is totally gay for apologising.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
