Chris Culliver, who created a commotion during Super Bowl week with homophobic comments, has stirred up a new controversy with a post to Instagram that shows him using derogatory terms to describe women.

Culliver posted a picture to his Instagram account Wednesday night that showed a conversation between the cornerback and a friend using the username 'James Bro.' The discussion involving dating women is full of crude language.

"We are aware of the matter, and it is being handled internally," 49ers GM Trent Baalke said in a statement.

Culliver's representative told Larry Brown Sports that it was all a misunderstanding and the derogatory slurs were not Culliver's words.
