When it comes to sports stars, former NFL superstar Chad Johnson has shown himself to be pretty open-minded when it comes to the LGBT community, having repeatedly claimed in the past that his masculinity isn’t threatened by having gay or trans friends. However, Johnson found himself in quite the predicament with his gay fan base earlier this week when he revealed that it makes him uncomfortable when gay male fans send him nude photos.
Recently, Johnson took to Twitter and explained that several of his male fans have been sending him nude photos on the social media site as well as Instagram. Although he’s accepting of all people, he politely asked that men stop sending their nudes to him.
However, when one fan claimed that nudes are inappropriate from both men and women, Johnson quickly corrected her and said that he’ll happily accept nude photos from his female fans. Not surprisingly, shortly after Johnson tweeted that, a bevy of his female fans proceeded to share their nudes with him.
Well, considering that Johnson is straight, we can understand why male nudes do absolutely nothing for him, and it’s also commendable that he handled male nude overload in such a respectable manner.
