Cheers to MLS Chicago Fire player Mike Magee for his response to an anti-gay tweet earlier this week.
So, backstory: Mike Magee missed a penalty kick. We all remember that part. A Union supporter with the handle @aaronfox72 decided that a little post-game smack-talk was necessary (as one does) and fired off a tweet to Magee with the message, "great penalty faggot, GO UNION."
There is a reason athletes are called role models. The tweeter's response:
@magee9 I apologize for my ignorance and have a lot of respect for what you do. I have respect for what you do and regret what i said. Sorry— ⒶⒶⓇⓄⓃ (@aaronfox__) April 7, 2014
