The Los Angeles Kings’ Dustin Penner has long been known for his dry sense of humor. It turns out that not only is Penner a really funny guy, but he has a solid taste in music, too.
A lot of athletes have been weighing in with their opinions on having a gay teammate in the wake of Jason Collins‘ announcement. Most responses have been positive, and Penner’s thoughts on the subject, sent out in a tweet earlier this week, are no different.
But Penner is clear about one thing: It’s okay to be gay in the Kings’ locker room, but listening to Canadian alternative rock is definitely not cool. Check out Penner’s tweet below.
Honestly I don't care if you are gay or straight as my teammate. As long as you don't listen to Nickelback. #courage—
