"My stance on gay athletes is irrelevant," Henderson told ESPN by phone.
Henderson told ESPN that his friend, who does not attend Ole Miss, asked him to tweet out something on Sam a couple of weeks ago, but he declined at the time.
However, after watching Sam get drafted and seeing his younger brothers' reaction to the display of affection between Sam and his boyfriend on television, Henderson decided to post the comment on Twitter.
Henderson said he plans to meet with his friend Tuesday in the Dallas area, where Henderson lives.
Henderson said he is on a team with former NBA players Hakim Warrick and Reggie Williams.
