Michael Sam Talks About Social Media Haters in Coca-Cola Super Bowl Week Spot: VIDEO

Cc_sam

In advance of the Super Bowl, Coca-Cola has released a new video spot in its #MakeItHappy campaign featuring NFL free agent Michael Sam. The ad features clips of Sam with his fiancé Vito Cammisano as he receives the ESPY Arthur Ashe award as well as images of the couple on social media together.

Vito_samIn the spot, Sam talks about the role social media plays in his life because he's in the spotlight, and the way he turns the hate messages and death wishes he sees every day into a positive thing.

Says Sam:

"One nasty email she pretty much told me that we don't belong - that we're evil. She is really the only hate message that I replied to. And what I said was, 'I am sorry that you feel that way, but even though you hate me so much I still love you, and I wish you have a great day.' She never replied back."

He adds:

"All the negativity that comes to me I channel to positivity. I have to prove the haters wrong. If I can use social media to make somebody understand and accept people I will do so. I'm not doing it for me. I'm doing it for them."

Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Chris Evans and Others Claim Responsibility for 'Deflategate': VIDEO

Deflategate

Since far too much media coverage has been devoted this week to the so-called 'Deflategate' controversy, a few Patriots fans have come forward to take responsibility in advance of Sunday's Super Bowl game.

Demand the perpetrators: "Now leave Tom Brady alone. Tom Brady had nothing to do with this because he's too busy, being awesome...And those lips. Amen. Those lips. It wasn't Brady, unless he deflated those footballs with his piercing blue eyes."

Super Bowl Host Committee Warns Arizona Over Anti-Gay Bill: VIDEO

Markell

Delaware Governor Jack Markell spoke out about Arizona's anti-gay bill on Monday, saying that the Super Bowl needs to be moved if Brewer signs it:

"If they pass this law and if she signs it, it would seem to me that the NFL may be looking, or should be looking, to move the Super Bowl out of that state. Because, you know, there’s so many places around the country that are welcoming to everybody.”

The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee released a statement opposing the legislation:

We share the NFL's core values which embrace tolerance, diversity, inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination. In addition, a key part of the mission for the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee is to promote the economic vitality of Arizona. On that matter we have heard loud and clear from our various stakeholders that adoption of this legislation would not only run contrary to that goal but deal a significant blow to the state's economic growth potential. We do not support this legislation. Instead, we look forward to continuing to promote the NFL's values while focusing on the economic momentum apparent in Arizona and capturing the positive worldwide attention associated with hosting Super Bowl XLIX.

The Arizona Cardinals are calling for a veto and the NFL says it is monitoring the situation:

“Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness, and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should the bill be signed into law, but will decline further comment at this time.”
