Elkington insults gay NFL hopeful Sam on Twitter


Steve Elkington, golf’s undisputed leader in insensitive and boneheaded tweets, was at it again Tuesday. 

Since July, Elkington has tweeted a racist term for Pakistanis, joked about a fatal plane crash in Scotland, publicly commented on a woman’s breast size and gotten into a heated feud with Ian Poulter

Now, he has tweeted this (to his nearly 60,000 followers) about NFL hopeful Michael Sam, who recently revealed that he is gay (Editor's note: This is a screen capture; tweet was deleted):

In earlier tweets, he attempted to provide the context that he thinks ESPN’s coverage of Sam as a gay athlete is “embarrassing.”
