Napoleon Jinnies, one of two male cheerleaders to make history at the Super Bowl earlier this month, told a news organization that he was bulled for being gay at times in his life.

“I was always the only boy on the dance team in junior high and high school, and during those years, I was bullied for being gay,” Jinnies, who is from Santa Barbara, Calif., told Refinery 29. “The bullies would make comments in the hallway and one time, someone put gum in my hair,” he said.
