The Rock Encourages Jason Collins
Monday’s top story in sports is Washington Wizards center Jason Collins telling Sports Illustrated that he’s gay. The Rock weighed in on Collins’ decision to come out on Twitter:
Being real & authentic is very powerful. Well done Jason Collins for having the courage to take a monumental step forward. #LiveReal

Pro wrestling is not unaffected by homophobia and I hope that people in the business see this step forward and aren’t afraid to follow suit. It’s time to tear down the lies and end discriminatory behavior for good.
