Kobe Bryant’s gay slur caught on video – whoopsie daisy!
After taking a bench he called the referee a “F—ing F—–,” and his words were caught on live television. Oh, with probably MILLIONS watching!
The incident prompted a gay right’s group (The Human Rights Campaign) to call Kobe’s actions, “horribly offensive,” and the NBA to investigate.
Kobe Bryant swears he meant no harm and was just caught up in emotion. “What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”
By the way, the Lakers ended up winning anyway.
