Former Minnesota Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe Jokes About Child Abuse But Can't Handle a Homophobic Slur

Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is a blogger's dream. With another month before we'll have any real football news to talk about we are left with whatever scandalous behavior may arise. Now that the Vikings have announced they are suspending special teams coordinator Mike Priefer three games for making a homophobic comment we have it.

Not because of Priefer, but because of the dirt that the Vikings spilled on Kluwe.

In the report the team released they spelled out a number of incidents that paint Kluwe in a bad light, but the worst was when he made jokes in relation to the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal.

From the Vikings memo via (PFT):
“...In his interview, Kanavy explained that Kluwe cut the seat out of his pants and then put them on to imitate a victim of the Penn State child-abuse scandal. According to Kanavy, Kluwe said that he was a ‘Penn State victim’ and to ‘stay away’ from him while his buttocks were exposed.
It is safe to say that was not one of Kluwe's better decisions--which he admits to doing:

He gets bent out of shape about a homophobic comment, but thinks it is okay to joke about children being abused? Wow.

Needless to say--folks on social media are pretty outraged.

His honesty is commendable, but he should have and needs to apologize.
