49ers tackled by another LGBT issue
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The 49ers organization woke up Friday morning to yet another public relations flap regarding the lesbian, gay, transgender, and questioning community. This latest controversy centers on the popular, anti-bullying campaign, "It Gets Better."
The "It Gets Better" project is aimed at combating the bullying of LGBT youth. Friday, the group's founder removed the Super Bowl team's video from its website.
The move comes after USA Today reported that linebacker, Ahmad Brooks, and nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga say they didn't know the video they took part in last summer supported gay rights of teens.
The report says the two players first denied making the video and then said they thought it was only to prevent bullying in general.
