Simmons posted on Twitter “I support @TimTebow. He was widely criticized and made fun of, simply because he is a man of faith, who believed in his Christian values. Shame on the NFL and the rest of the world for stooping so low.”
This wasn’t the first time Simmons came to Tebow’s defense. During an interview with Fox New’s Fox & Friends Simmons said, “Here’s a man who believes in God and people pick on him,” says Simmons. “If he was a Jew, or a Muslim and you did that—people would never dare. But for some reason if he’s a Christian, you’re allowed to pick on him. It’s the height of lunacy, and those journalists should be held accountable. They’re never gonna pick on a guy who tortures dogs or has perhaps gone to jail for murder, but if he believes in Christ his Lord, then it’s open season. It’s like, what country are we living in?”
