MIAMI (PIX11) – Miami Dolphins Wide Receiver Mike Wallace is doing damage control after tweeting what some are taking to be a swipe at Jason Collins after he came out as gay.

Collins, a former center for the Washington Wizards, became the first male to come out in any major sport while still playing earlier today. Just hours after the NBA free agent made the announcement, Wallace tweeted “All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH.”

While Wallace quickly deleted the statement, it’s still available on Google’s cache, and he’s now offering a response.

Later in the day he tweeted an apology, saying “Never said anything was right or wrong I just said I don’t understand!! Deeply sorry for anyone that I offended.”
