O.J. Simpson has spoken out in support of NFL star Carl Nassib after he came out as gay.

O.J. says during his time with the league, he played alongside many gay players.

"Aye [Nassib], more power to you, man. That's terrific." You know, over the years people have asked me 'Hey man, did you play with gay athletes?' Of course, I did. They're everywhere in every profession. It's no different in football as there would be in whatever. You know, postoffice workers or police officers, any profession, you have it," he says in the clip.

He continued: "I mean they may not come out. But, they are there. Trust me. I gotta say this, I do protest what's happening down in New Zealand. They're allowing [Laurel] Hubbard, the weightlifter-transgender-female weight lifter, to compete in the Olympics. Now that's, as far as I'm concerned, wrong. He was born biologically a guy. Men are biologically stronger, faster, and in most cases have more endurance than females."
