Michael Sam and former fiance Vito Cammisano reunited to record a video in support of GLAAD's Spirit Day.

The 6th annual Spirit Day supports efforts to combat the bullying of LGBT teens. Supporters are encouraged to wear purple.

Wearing purple shirts emblazoned with “everybody's different … DEAL WITH IT,” the men explain why they support Spirit Day.

“As someone who was once bullied, I think it’s very important that we tackle this issue,” said Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted into the National Football League (NFL). “So many kids have reached out to me telling me how they have been bullied.”

“I support Spirit Day because I was bullied in middle school a lot and I never want any young person to feel like they can’t be comfortable being who they are,” Cammisano said. “Let’s get the word out today that we are not going to take bullying anymore.”
