Two San Francisco 49ers deny making 'It Gets Better' anti-bullying video; Dan Savage yanks clip

Last night, It Get Better founder Dan Savage removed a video from the website made last August by the San Francisco 49ers -- after two of the four players featured in the team PSA denied making the anti-bullying video.

From USA Today:

But two of the players who took part in the video — linebacker Ahmad Brooks and nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga — strangely denied making the video. Then, when shown the video, they said they didn't realize the aim of the production was to fight the bullying of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens.

This 49ers controversy follows another earlier this week, when cornerback Chris Culliver told a radio shock jock, "I don't do the gay guys man. I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can't be…in the locker room man. Nah." (Culliver quickly apologized.)
