Former UFC fighter Nate Marquardt has come under fire from the LGBTQ community for a tweet he posted in response to a commercial featuring two men kissing. The tweet has been widely criticized as discriminatory and offensive, highlighting the ongoing struggle for equality and acceptance faced by the LGBTQ community. Marquardt’s comments underscore the need for greater awareness and sensitivity towards marginalized groups, and the importance of promoting tolerance and inclusivity in all areas of society.
According to reports, the 43-year-old former UFC fighter made the offensive comments after viewing the commercial while watching ESPN+. Marquardt is widely known for his knockout victory over Tyron Woodley in a 2012 fight, but his recent comments have drawn widespread criticism from those who view them as discriminatory and harmful to the LGBTQ community. The incident underscores the importance of promoting acceptance and respect for all, and the ongoing need to address issues of discrimination and prejudice in society.
In the tweet that has since been widely condemned, Marquardt described the commercial as “disgusting” and said that he had to tell his children to “look away” so they wouldn’t see two men kissing. He then added a throwing up emoji to express his apparent disgust at the scene.
Marquardt’s comments have been criticized as homophobic and discriminatory, and many have pointed out the harmful impact such attitudes can have on the LGBTQ community.
The former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion faced swift backlash from fans for his comments and was widely criticized. Despite this, he persisted in his stance and expressed further support for his views through additional tweets.
As of Monday afternoon, the controversial posts remained visible on his social media page. Nate’s last pro fight came in 2021, when he lost via TKO to Valdir Araujo at XMMA 3. He posted a 36-20-2 record in his fighting career.
