Derrick Ward receives death threats after tweets about Michael Sam

derrickDerrick Ward the former Giants Super Bowl running back went off this week on twitter.  He didn’t agree with the Michael Sam kiss that struck national television, but now he he is receiving death threats. Here is what he said.

Ward explained in a series of tweets on his Twitter page that he has been getting death threats.

“Gotta love America. Home of the greatest sh*t talkers on earth. The past 24hrs I’ve been accused of being prejudice [and] a bigot. Had a few people say they wanted to kill me and my kids. I was the worst player in the NFL,” he noted.

“They hope I die. And my kids killed. All because I said I didn’t think it was appropriate for someone to shove cake down another person’s face then tongue them down on national TV. Not once saying anything about the person’s sexual preference. But that’s America for you. All I can do is smile and say thank you for seeing things that aren’t there!”

Ward did not seemed worried about the threats, but did say this.
