U.S. athletes have been taking to Twitter to challenge the notion that Donald Trump's comments about groping women were "locker room talk."

In the presidential debate Sunday night, Republican candidate Trump dismissed as "locker room talk" his recently leaked 2005 comments in which he brags about making unwanted sexual advances on women.

In the 2005 comments, Trump, who was then recently married to his third wife, described how he tried and failed to seduce a television host, who was also married. He then boasted about how he could grope women because he was famous.

NFL receiver Chris Conley said athletes in lockers rooms "don't talk like that."


NBA star CJ McCollum said he hasn't heard comments similar to what Trump had said.


Major League Baseball pitcher Sean Doolittle said "that's not locker room talk."
