Video – Kobe Bryant Calls Ref Bernie Adams "Fucking Fag" During Lakers v. San Antonio Game – Fined $100,000.00 Dollars


Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant was hardly a role model last night to the million of kids who look up to when Bryant yelled out a homophobic slur toward referee Bennie Adams calling him a “fucking fag”  from the bench after receiving a technical foul during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs.

Bryant has since apologized  saying “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.”

I wonder how Kobe would react if someone called him a “fucking ni**er” out of frustration. Or what would happen if it were done in the middle of a televised basketball game?
