Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Reporter who tried to cancel NFL coaching candidate for anti-gay remark in college is outed for his own racist, homophobic tweets”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Detroit Free-Press article on Friday detailed how Campbell, speaking at a pep rally in 1998 before his Texas A&M University team took on arch-rival the University of Texas, said he was proud to attend a school where "men like women and women like men." He later issued an apology, which was published in a local newspaper.

The resurfacing of an old controversy came at an inopportune time for Campbell, who, according to reporter Marlowe Alter, was the leading candidate to fill the Lions' vacant head coaching position. But it quickly came to light that Alter himself has a far more extensive and recent history of bigoted commentary.

For instance, Alter tweeted in 2012 that "faggots who think Team USA basketball is a bunch of egotistical a**holes who only care about themselves" should "watch the games." That same year, he told someone to "consider changing that faggot a** AVI," and to others, "Always knew you were a fag" and "Haha fag."

After conservative author Mike Cernovich pointed out the hypocrisy of the reporter who tried to get Campbell canceled, rapper Erik Foreman said, "This is basically all of them. I know because I keep tabs. The people I grew up with who said/did the worst s**t are the ones hunting people down."
