NFL quarterback Drew Brees defended himself this week after critics slammed a video in which the New Orleans Saints star encouraged Christian students to participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day.
But after critics targeted Brees on social media for associating with the group – with some accusing the former Purdue University star himself of being anti-gay -- Brees posted a second video Thursday, this time on his own Twitter account.
“Hopefully this sets the record straight with who I am and what I stand for,” Brees wrote above the video. “Love, Respect, and Accept ALL. I encourage you not to believe the negativity you read that says differently. It’s simply not true. Have a great day.”
