One of the things the public learned from the report commissioned by the Minnesota Vikings regarding allegations made by former punter Chris Kluwe in a post on Deadspin, was that Kluwe, heterosexual champion to all things gay rights related, enjoyed joking about boys being sexually assaulted. According to the report, Kluwe cut the seat out of his pants, put them on, and then told Vikings’ strength and conditioning coach Tom Kanavy, a Penn State alumni, that he was a victim of Penn State defensive coach Jerry Sandusky and to stay away from him while his ass were exposed.
What type of person jokes about child rape?
According to Chris Kluwe, over half of the 2012 Minnesota Vikings joked about it:
Over half the team did it for over a month, including asking him if he “raped any little boys lately,” repeatedly, in front of coaches.

Chris Kluwe made light of something that should never be made light of, and then when he began to deservedly catch heat over it, he immediately threw his former teammates under the bus. The problem is that because he didn’t specifically name anyone who joked about children being sodomized, it’s left to the reader to guess whom Kluwe was referring to. Was it Adrian Peterson? How about Christian Ponder? Was it Jared Allen?
If I had to guess, then I’d guess none of them did.
Chris Kluwe is a fraud. I used to have a lot of respect for him. Now I don’t have any. It’s clear at this point that he craves attention and will do anything to get it, even it means cutting a hole in his pants and pretending to be a sexually assaulted child. I think he used the issue of gay rights and gay marriage as a vehicle to get that attention. I highly doubt he truly cares about gay rights. Someone who cares about gay rights doesn’t crack jokes about Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting little boys.
Chris Kluwe was a mediocre punter of footballs and he’s an even worse human being.
