In a leaked tape, Donald Trump was caught making crude and predatory comments about women.  Trump bragged about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women other than his wife. “When you’re a star, they let you do it,” he bragged. “You can do anything.  Grab them by the pu–y”  The Republican presidential candidate characterized his comments as just “locker room talk” not meant to be heard in the general public, but several athletes from different major league sports all dismissed his excuse and say they don’t speak like that in the locker room at all.

“I don’t know what locker room he’s been in,” Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem said. “No, I didn’t appreciate it, to be completely honest. That’s not our locker room talk. I don’t know Trump very well at all, but I don’t know who he’s played for the last couple years to even say he’s been in anybody’s locker room and had those kind of conversations.”

Athletes fired back en masse at Trump to send the message that they don’t talk like he does. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley, Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, and retired NFL players Donte Stallworth and Chris Kluwe were among the first to speak out, and many have since followed.

“It didn’t sound like any talk in any locker room that I’ve ever been in, so maybe it was just a phrase,” Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins said. “But it was wrong.”

The athletes acknowledged that there is some inappropriate talk in locker rooms but they stop short of predatory comments made by Trump.
