Michael Sam eliminated from ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Out gay NFL hopeful Michael Sam has been eliminated from ‘Dancing With the Stars’.
He said: “The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I’m just saying there’s some famous people, and I’m not the only one.”
Despite he and his dance partner Peta Murgatroyd gaining their top marks from the judges, the pair were eliminated as they did not receive enough public votes.
After being eliminated, Sam said: “I had a great time; an awesome experience… I want to thank ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and everyone here who came out and supported.’
