Unfortunately for everyone, Steve Elkington is still saying stupid things on Twitter


Surprise, surprise. Steve Elkington said something stupid on Twitter on Tuesday -- making a homophobic joke about the openly gay NFL prospect Michael Sam, who is participating in the NFL combine this week.

Just to put this in context: 10 days ago Elkington made a tasteless joke about golf blogger Stephanie Wei, and he caused outrage last year after tweeting a racist joke about "Pakkis" (although he did later apologize for that one).

Here are the tweets:

Update: Predictably, Elkington's remark drew a sharp rebuke on Twitter:

__Another update:__In a later tweet, Elkington said he was merely mocking how Sam was being singled out for his sexual preference.
