Ohio State’s Eli Apple may have been asked the strangest of all.Friday morning, Apple, appearing on CSN Philly’s The 700 Level, revealed that a coach on the Atlanta Falcons staff asked him if he likes men. Here’s the quote, via CSN Philly:“The Falcons coach, one of the coaches, was like, ‘So do you like men?’ It was like the first thing he asked me. It was weird. I was just like, ‘no.’ He was like, ‘if you’re going to come to Atlanta, sometimes that’s how it is around here, you’re going to have to get used to it.’ I guess he was joking but they just ask most of these questions to see how you’re going to react.” The Falcons, for the record, have already released a statement on the matter. In it, they apologize to Apple.You can see video below. Apple at first isn’t sure whether to answer the question truthfully – but obviously, he does.Your browser does not support iframes.Clearly, this isn’t a good look for either the Falcons or the NFL. We’ll see if there is any more fallout.last_img
