Days after football player Michael Sam revealed that he is gay, new photos of his possible boyfriend were released.
On Wednesday, Every Joe posted the pictures of the football player and the young man, whose name is reportedly Sean Smith.
The pictures show Sam and Smith in a black and white shot where they appear to be cozy with each other. Sam seems to have his arm around Smith, who's giving a wide grin.
Smith is seen in more provocative shots, including a selfie where he's wearing nothing but a towel. In a black and white shot, he's holding a cell phone in what appears to be a bathroom as he exposes his upper torso, showing off tattoos.
Sam revealed his sexuality to ESPN's Outside the Lines in a public interview on Sunday.
On Thursday, Kvue posted a video of Dallas sportscaster Dale Hansen's response to Sam's coming out.
"Several NFL officials are telling Sports Illustrated it will hurt him on draft day because a gay player wouldn't be welcome in an NFL locker room. It would be uncomfortable because that's a 'man's' world," the sportscaster reported.
"You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You're the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft," the sportscaster added. "You kill people while driving drunk? That guy's welcome. Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know 'they're' welcome. Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away? You lie to police to cover up a murder? We're comfortable with that. You love another man? Well, now you've gone to far!"
