Earlier today Marshall Henderson tweeted that he was boycotting ESPN for showing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend during the NFL Draft.

It immediately blew up in his face. Everyone ripped him.

Now, he says those tweets were all part of a sociological study designed by his gay friend, who's a psychology major.

It's the most preposterous explanation for offensive tweeting we've ever seen from an athlete. It's the new "I got hacked."

"Totally was 100% for the project," he wrote.

Marshall explains:

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR INPUT AND RESPONSES!!! MY NEXT TWEET IS REALLY GONNA THROW EVERYONE A CURVEBALL

One of my best friends, WHO IS GAY, is about to graduate in psychology, asked me to say these things so he can have responses ... TBC

The point of his study was to see how people react when others say things or act a certain way against another group of people ... TBC

He chose gays because of how he relates to it and has to live it EVERYDAY of his life ... He asked me because he knew I would get incredible

Feedback, and OMG how crazy you people are lol ... It is absolutely amazing to see what people have said, whether agreeing or disagreeing

As far as what I said, Totally was 100% for the project ... as far as my ACTUAL views - its irrelevant because its gonna happen regardless!
