Metta World Peace Reacts to Jason Collins Coming Out

Metta World Peace held a press conference today and he had a few things to say about Jason Collins publicly coming out. It made a lot of sense, but at the same time, very little sense.

Whether it’s a free country or not, you should be free to act as you want to do as long as it’s not violent. No matter what it is. I came here in a Cookie Monster shirt because I wanted to, and I was going to wear the pants. But I thought you guys were going to judge me. I was going to wear the hat too. But I thought you guys would judge me. I didn’t want Mitch [Kupchak] to judge me. So that’s why I didn’t wear the hats and the pants. But I should’ve wore it. You should be free to do and act how you want to act. Sulia

Never in the history of the world has someone so succinctly and eloquently compared the stigma of being gay to the stigma of wearing a Cookie Monster outfit to a press conference than Metta World Peace. I’ll just leave it at that.
