On Friday, news broke that the Detroit Lions are closing in on hiring New Orleans Saints assistant head coach Dan Campbell to be their next head coach.
Not long after the news broke, Detroit Free Press writer Marlowe Alter decided to write up an article in which he blasts Campbell for a homophobic remark that he made two decades ago.

Now, to be absolutely clear, if the Lions are going to hire Campbell to be their head coach, he absolutely must answer for his past mistake, own it, and make it clear that he has grown personally since that time in his life.
But, what about the author who wrote the piece calling out Campbell?
Thanks to some digging by Pro Sports Extra, we all now know that Marlowe Alter has a disgusting past of tweeting out both homophobic and racist messages and he absolutely must explain himself immediately or be fired.
Here are some of the tweets, courtesy of PSE:

Marlowe, you probably should have let somebody else report that news. We await your response.
