Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott
Fujita is the second professional athlete to record an ad for the
Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Americans for Marriage Equality
“As an NFL linebacker I play the game
tough but fair,” the 32-year-old Fujita says in his 30-second ad.
“I've been married for 12 years and I
know that it is unfair to keep other loving and committed couples
from getting married and protecting their families,” he adds. (The
