New Orleans Saints' Jonathan Vilma is Worried Gay Players Will Look At Him in the Shower

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 10.52.13 AM

New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma appears to have some unresolved fears about gays in the locker room. When asked by NFL Network’s Andrea Kramer about potentially playing with a gay teammate, Vilma responded:

"I think he would not be accepted as much as we think he would be accepted. I don't want people to just naturally assume, oh, we're all homophobic. That's really not the case. Imagine if he's the guy next to me, and you know, I get dressed, naked, taking a shower, the whole nine, and it just so happens he looks at me, how am I supposed to respond?"

Vilma is apparently unaware that he’s been showering with gay men his whole life without much hullabaloo...

  1. Vilma doesn't think he's ever gotten naked in front of a gay man before? How incredibly naive.

  2. Some folks should keep quiet so that we don't get confirmation of how idiotic they are.

  3. Why is it that the ones I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot barge pole are the ones worried that I'll look at their penis?

  4. LOL

    If your ding dong is a decent size you have nothing worry about.

    Lord, how is he going apologize for such a stupid statement.

    And also, how many times have locker room interviews been caught on camera with naked ball players in the background? Well, not enough lately. Back in the 70s it was fabulous: naked football players, naked basketball players, naked baseball players, naked hockey players...glorious period of locker room nudity.

    Now, you can't even see a booty.

  5. Why is it any different if a gay man looks at him in the shower than if a hetero man looks at him? Is he afraid he'll suc-cumb ...?

  6. Has he never looked? Or does he shut his eyes when he is in the locker room or shower?

  7. I doubt he would get looked at twice. Conceited ugly men have nothing going for them.

  8. LOL. 'The whole nine' (no pun intended) This stuff writes itself.

  9. Jon, you nasty farm animal, we're not looking at you.

  11. Ego much?

  12. @ Enchantra

    I knew you'd show up on this news story. You'd be lucky to be gang raped by a bunch of farm animals....roosters.

  13. this creep can't be serious - "...he looks at me, how am I supposed to respond?" - the same way you've always responded as gay guys have secretly checked you out in the locker room. smile, and say "hello".

  14. His comments assume that straight men don't want to keep tabs on who has the most impressive equipment. Now that's naive.

  15. Derrick, I love you.

  16. Women everywhere are laughing at you.

  17. Hilarious. And sad.

    Posted by: Matt27 | Feb 5, 2014 1:18:37 PM

  18. The sad part is that these guys really are clueless. They don't realize how insecure and unmanly it makes them sound to worry about who might (or might not) be checking them out in the locker room.

  19. They are really afraid that gay men will treat them like they treat women.

  20. Negro Please!

  21. Instead of slamming the guy, try to understand his fear. It's not that unreasonable. He's afraid of unwanted advances in a vulnerable situation.

    He needs education and not condemnation.

  22. I wonder what egotists like him think will happen if a gay man sees his peepee.

    Will that make it shrink? Will it turn him gay?

    Change egotist to moron.

  23. Big bad footballer is afraid gay men will treat him the way straight men have been treating women since the dawn of time?

    Poor baby...

  24. How cute! Big, burly muscle stud is afraid someone will see his little pecker. So modest! How girly of him.

  25. And another "PLAY THROUGH THE CONCUSSION" football player speaks!

    (Linebacker Jonathan Vilma was suspended for the ENTIRE 2012 season for his role in his team's pay-for-hits system . . . )
