Kobe Bryant Statement on 'Fag' Slur: 'I Didn't Mean to Offend Anyone'


The L.A. Lakers spoke with GLAAD this morning and released a statement from Kobe Bryant regarding the anti-gay slur captured on camera during his game last night.

Said Bryant:

“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.”

Bryant's slur is under review by the NBA.

  1. Give me a break. If you get the camera's out of his a-s then he can make a statement that should offend anyone. we should be able to make stupid statements to ourselves. by the way I love all gay people. I say things like this and other things about straight people does that make me bad. Get a 'F' life. Player haters.

  2. What a loser Kobe continues to be. He really needs to control his anger on the basketball court, his continued complaining and arguing with the refs on every call made against him or his team is beginning to be turn off as a fan. For every call made against Kobe, he nor his team in his mind ever commits a foul. And he knew for consistently bursting out in anger, so yes he should pay the 100,000 penalty. There should be an appeal process for his nasty words.
