The Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos slashed a player on Sunday, the day after he posted an anti-gay tweet.

Receiver and returner Christion Jones was released for tweeting: “The man is not supposed to be with a man. A woman is not supposed to be with another woman.

The Eskimos issued a statement away from Jones’ words.

“We support the LGBTQ2 + community and strongly condemn the language used by Christion Jones. There is no place for such comments about our team. Jones has been released from the list, ”said the team’s statement.

The CFL also issued a statement on the matter.

“We at CFL hold the Diversity Is Strength banner high,” the CFL statement said. “Our league does not claim perfection, but it strives to be inclusive, accept and celebrate our differences, and respect and honor human rights. There is no place in our league for comments that belittle people based on their religion, race, gender, or sexual orientation. As Pride Month continues, we stay with the LGBTQ + community. We should all say no to hate and yes to love. “

Jones, who played his college football in Alabama, initially defended his tweet. But after being released, he issued an apology.
