Jesse Hernandez made his debut in the NFL this weekend with the Saints Cheerleaders' "Saintsations" dance squad. There are several men making their debuts this season as NFL cheerleaders, but Jesse became the first to take the field at last Friday's game.
Unfortunately, not everyone thinks this is a good idea. There's been a lot of homophobic comments aimed at Jesse and the NFL in general on Twitter. At this point, it's probably a good idea to just abandon Twitter unless you're a hateful, racist bigot.
The NFL has been working to be more inclusive and this is a great step in the right direction.
