Alabama Democratic representative John Rogers seems to believe that Cam Newton is gay.
This is after he first confused him as a transgender person.
The comments came during a Committee hearing on HB35, a bill that would prohibit a transgender person from competing in sporting events that are female only.
The bill ended up being defeated but is likely to be brought back up again in this session, according to its author Chris Pringle (R-Mobile).
During the hearing, Rogers made several odd comments in opposition to the bill, beginning with him stating that, “My favorite player is a transgender.”
Rogers was then unable to name who the player was, stating that he played for the “North Carolina Panthers” and was about to be cut by the team for being transgender.
He was referring to Cam Newton.
