Robbie Rogers: Talks Shower Jokes and Coming Out on ‘Chelsea Lately’
Robbie Rogers made a bold move by outing himself on Facebook as gay. Hear how he handled the public’s reaction on “Chelsea Lately.”
The professional soccer player says he is against a boycott of the 2014 Winter Olympics due to Russia’s “gay propaganda” law:
I went to the Beijing Olympics and it was the best experience of my life,” the L.A. Galaxy winger told host Chelsea Handler. ”And to take that away from someone, I just don’t feel comfortable doing. Now, if people want to do that, okay more power to them. But I would encourage people to go, to be out, to be just great role models, to compete, and hopefully to win. And not to hide any of that. I think that would be a bigger more important symbol, or just a stronger message.
