Today, NBA center Jason Collins became the first professional athlete in a major American sport to come out as openly gay. He did so by writing a piece for Sports Illustrated explaining his feelings and discussing his struggle with the decision to come out to family members and friends before eventually coming to the conclusion that he needed to let the world know.

Enter: Mike Wallace. You know him as a wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins (formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers). Wallace practically tripped over himself to be the first professional athlete to look like an idiot on Twitter in wake of Jason Collins' announcement. He sent the following tweets this afternoon.

He's since issued an apology and clarified that he doesn't understand homosexuality.
