Ole Miss’ Marshall Henderson Proves He’s a Bigger D-Bag Than You Thought
Former Ole Miss basketball player and All-American tool Marshall Henderson took to Twitter today to express his frustration with SportsCenter’s coverage of Michael Sam’s kiss.
Just when you thought his d-bag antics reached an all-time high after getting suspended indefinitely from the Ole Miss team last year, Henderson tweets,
Boycotting sportscenter til this michael sam nasty ass shit is off …. My brothers are 7 and 11 and saw that!!! #SICKENING
After receiving an onslaught of feedback from the Twittersphere, Marshall began backpedaling, saying his comments were to help a friend with a psychology assignment. No, really. I can’t make this up.
Feeling he still wasn’t being clear, he finally tweeted his support for Sam. In all capital letters so you know it’s legit.
Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork, responded on Twitter saying that he’s “extremely disappointed & we do not condone the statements made by our former bball player. We believe in respect & dignity for all.”
Honest version of that tweet: “Jesus. Had we known this kid was such a screwup, we would’ve left him in Texas.”
Before graduating from high school, Henderson was placed on probation for trying to buy $800 (around 60 grams) worth of marijuana with counterfeit money. Following that incident, while still on probation, he failed a drug test, testing positive for alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. This, combined with his failing to perform community service as dictated, caused Henderson to have to serve 25 days in jail in the spring of 2012 at Tarrant County Jail in Texas.
During the summer of 2013, Henderson was caught in possession of marijuana and cocaine and was suspended for the first three games of the 2013–14 NCAA Division I men’s basketball season, his senior campaign.
