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.
WATCH: Trump comment about 'locker room talk'
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."
Have I been in every locker room? No. But the guys I know and respect don%27t talk like that. They talk about girls but not like that. Period.— Chris Conley (@_flight17_) October 10, 2016
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."
As an athlete, I%27ve been in locker rooms my entire adult life and uh, that%27s not locker room talk.— Sean Doolittle (@whatwouldDOOdo) October 10, 2016
Others weighing in included NFL tight end Jacob Tamme

Claiming Trump%27s comments are "locker room banter" is to suggest they are somehow acceptable. They aren%27t.— Dahntay (@dahntay1) October 9, 2016
