Mythic douchebag and straight while male, Nico Hines recently published an article where we used Grindr to see what athletes were gay. Many people spoke out against the article which originally help details that could potentially out gay athletes in countries that Hines himself noted were still homophobic. After a ton of well-deserved criticism, The Daily Beat finally pulled the article and apologized.
