Besides the Olympics, the big sports news over the weekend was that Missouri All-American Michael Sam announced he is gay, and, if drafted this spring, the defensive end could become the first openly gay player in the NFL.

“Once I became official to my teammates, I knew who I was,” Sam told the New York Times. “I knew that I was gay. And I knew that I was Michael Sam, who’s a Mizzou football player who happens to be gay. I was so proud of myself and I just didn’t care who knew.”

Since the news broke, many celebs have tweeted out their support. Read the messages below.
