Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson issued an apology Friday night for his comments earlier in the day that were critical of the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
“I apologize for any offense my tweets may have caused,” Robinson wrote in a text message. “In an attempt to express my beliefs, I created some confusion with my choice of words, and for that I apologize. I do not equate the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality with other social issues. There are obvious differences. However, I do believe that God’s laws will always supersede man’s laws. This belief is not from hate for anyone but from a love for my God and all those he created. Again, I’m sorry!”
Robinson (JROB_2one) expressed his disapproval of the ruling in a series of tweets that have since been deleted.
Robinson made his Twitter account private Friday afternoon and posted a few more tweets on the matter afterwards.
Vikings wide receiver Charles Johnson (MrInkredibleXII) also sent a tweet but with a difference stance than Robinson.
I can’t discriminate, when I’ve always been discriminated against
