Chris Kluwe: I Was Dropped For My Activism For Same-Sex Rights

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Vikings have brought in former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Eric Magnuson and former U.S. Department of Justice trial attorney Chris Madel to investigate claims by former punter Chris Kluwe that special teams coach Mike Priefer made homophobic remarks during the 2012 season, and that Kluwe lost his job because of his support of gay marriage.

Prifer's Statement:

I vehemently deny today's allegations made by Chris Kluwe. I want to be clear that I do not tolerate discrimination of any type and am respectful of all individuals. I personally have gay family members who I love and support just as I do any family member.

The comments today have not only attacked my character and insulted my professionalism, but they have also impacted my family. While my career focus is to be a great professional football coach, my number one priority has always been to be a protective husband and father to my wife and children.
