Baltimore Ravens fans didn’t mind when quarterback Joe Flacco made a gay joke during a victory parade.
In a post on his Twitter account, Flacco joked about a female teammate, saying she’s “a little bit hot, but I’m not a lesbian.”
“Hey, that’s just my opinion.
I don’t know what that’s about.
But I’m just going to let it be,” Flacco said.
Flacco made the joke about his teammate during the Ravens’ 24-20 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
The Ravens (2-1) have had a rough season and Flacco, who has been under fire for his lack of leadership, made the statement in an apparent attempt to downplay the controversy.
Flacy also posted a message on his Instagram account, where he said, “I’m sorry if I offended anyone, but this is a very personal time and it’s my first time making a joke like this.”
Flacco apologized to his teammates and the fans, saying he was “disappointed” in the comments.
