Russell Wilson, a devout Christian, said Monday he and girlfriend Ciara plan to practice abstinence until they’re married. But Chicago radio host Dan Bernstein has his own reservations as to why that might be.Bernstein implied that the Seahawks quarterback could be gay on WSCR-AM’s “Boers & Bernstein” when a listener asked whether God told Wilson to abstain in his previous marriage with Ashton Meem, who was rumored to have had an affair with former Seahawks receiver Golden Tate.
“If you start to piece this all together, I think you come away with a pretty easy-to-reach conclusion here,” Bernstein said during a long-winded segment, as transcribed by Yahoo Sports. “The whole thing. Don’t you? Don’t you just wish he could feel comfortable enough to be a little more truthful with all of it?
“Put the pieces together. The whole Russell Wilson thing — all of the artifice here. Everything that’s going on. All the strangeness. All of the stuff with the first wife, and the discomfort there … and this isn’t a new pattern.”
“And I understand there were times past where you felt you had to live a lie. This isn’t that time. This is quite the opposite of that; you don’t have to live a lie. You don’t have to be artificial.”
Bernstein doesn’t outright calls Wilson gay during the segment, nor does he say being gay would be a bad thing. But it’s fairly obvious that’s what he was insinuating, and his comments are sure to drum up some controversy.
