New Jersey Assemblyman Calls Eagles “Gaybirds,” Quickly Recants

The playoffs can bring out the worst in die-hard fans. Ok, for Philly, the regular season and preseason can turn even the most mild-mannered fan into a rage-filled aggressor.

But you’d expect more from a New Jersey state assemblyman, well, as long as that assemblyman isn’t Charles Mainor.

Mainor is currently playing the apology game for (gay) bashing the Eagles in recent a Facebook post. Will politicians ever learn to stay off Facebook?

In true Giants-fan etiquette, he broadcasted this little zinger on his Facebook page:

“We are not going to just lay down, we come to play. Who the hell do you think we are the DALLAS COWGIRLS OR THOSE GAYBIRDS FROM PHILLY . . . NO WE ARE THE NEW YORK GIANTS.”

While Mainor claimed a “friend” placed the “gaybirds” bit into the post, the assemblyman soon apologized for the colorful language, stating that, “”I have very, very close relatives who are gay. I have nothing against them. I’m far from that.”
