Betsy Layne High School in rural Kentucky honored the boys basketball team with a two-page spread in the school’s yearbook.
Well, almost all the team. One senior was left out of the tribute: Dalton Maldonado, the team’s starting point guard who came out publicly as gay a couple months ago.
James Corden of The Late Late Show took on the scandal last night during his opening:
“He’s a gay basketball player. Or as I like to call him, ‘a basketball player.’ Because there’s no such thing as gay basketball.”
“If you’re a homophobic school, you do not call yourself Betsy Layne High. Betsy Layne sounds like a girl who would LOVE a gay friend”
