"Denver Broncos Won’t Film Anti-Bullying Ad"

The Denver Broncos have “responded to an online campaign urging the team to make a video for the It Gets Better project, indicating that they won’t be jumping on the anti-bullying project anytime soon,” the Huffington Post’s Amanda Terkel reports. “The Denver Broncos are committed to tolerance, acceptance and respect for all in the community,” a spokesman said in a statement. “The National Football League is currently working with USA Network on its ‘Characters Unite’ campaign combating prejudice and intolerance, and our organization is in full support of that movement to help raise awareness for this very important cause.” The team did not comment on It Gets Better. Equality activists targeted the Broncos after quarterback Tim Tebow “starred in an ad for the right-wing group Focus on the Family, which opposes LGBT rights.”
