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.
