Donald Trump's comparison of the comments he made about sexually assaulting women to "locker room talk" has sparked plenty of commentary from the internet.
Athletes have taken to social media to note that they spend plenty of time in locker rooms. And they say that discussion doesn't typically condone sexual assault.
Here's what some athletes are saying (NOTE: Some language use may be offensive):
Claiming Trump's comments are "locker room banter" is to suggest they are somehow acceptable. They aren't.— Dahntay (@dahntay1) October 9, 2016
I haven't heard that one in any locker rooms https://t.co/Ci8NXOgFcI— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) October 10, 2016
I'm offended as an athlete that @realDonaldTrump keeps using this "locker room talk" as an excuse.— Robbie Rogers (@robbierogers) October 10, 2016
As an athlete, I've been in locker rooms my entire adult life and uh, that's not locker room talk.— Sean Doolittle (@whatwouldDOOdo) October 10, 2016
"Grab them by the pussy" isn't talk from any locker room I've ever been in. It's a Ted Bundy quote. #debate2016— Coach (@CMPunk) October 10, 2016
All this heavy breathing seems more locker room-esque than anything #debate— Blake Griffin (@blakegriffin32) October 10, 2016
Have I been in every locker room? No. But the guys I know and respect don't talk like that. They talk about girls but not like that. Period.— Chris Conley (@_flight17_) October 10, 2016
