Kobe Bryant’s Gay Slur

17 Apr

During a recent Los Angeles Lakers game on TNT, cameras caught Kobe Bryant calling a referee a gay slur. This slur is a word that is all too common in our society, and has no place in our daily life and especially not on the basketball court. He called the referee a f*ing fag.

After reviewing the slur, the league office decided to hand out a $100,000 fine to Bryant, but Bryant is appealing the fine because he thinks that saying that word and words like it is ok, as long as you are in the “heat of the game”. What the heck!? Are you serious Kobe? So basicallyy he is trying to tell us that when he is playing basketball he is allowed to do whatever the heck he wants! That is absurd.

I wasn’t really a fan of Kobe Bryant, but if I was I would definitely not be one now. In my opinion, he believes he is so much better than everyone, but until he can part seas he is just like you and me.

    Wow that is really disgusting. I totally agree with you because no one should be allowed to just say whatever they want to about anyone. And that gay slur is used way to often. I have to wonder how Kobe would feel if anyone ever called him a nigger??? It works the same way. I think it is ridiculous that he didn’t get in serious trouble for that. I will say that from a PR perspective, he screwed himself. He needs to really think about what he says.
