Did Kobe Bryant Use A Homophobic Slur During NBA Game? Watch Video


Kobe Bryant had a bad night last night.  He got his 14th technical foul with 1 game in the season to play.  If he gets 15, he is suspended.  His frustration is no excuse for what he MIGHT have said after picking up that 14th technical foul.  It seems he may have thrown a homophobic gay slur out there.

The camera was on Kobe and…..if you are a good lip reader….it does look like he said “What?  F’n F*g!”  This is lip-reading..not the sound of it.  There are ways around this…and believe me,  Kobe and a team of peeps are trying to find a way around this.  I bet you this is one thing they just may try….

I have a feeling Kobe will say he was saying something in Italian because he was mad.  Kobe does speak Italian along with several other languages.  He will say he has gay friends and he would never disrespect them like that.  Shoot, he may even throw in he has a gay uncle or something.

Just because someone appears to have mouthed the words, doesn’t mean they did.  It looks like it…but…did he?

Watch the video above around the 34 second mark and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

    Stop having a fu^kin cow, man. People say ‘fag’ and don’t even think about the homosexual aspect of it. Fag in England means cigarette.

    What’s the most important thing to us Americans? Exactly, the right to be able to express what we feel. Next is guns. That’s the original problem.

    To Ryan, you are right, people who fight for this country do not get the respect they deserve, they should be using these characters for the next superhero movies to come. But, Kobe (and I don’t even like the dude) deserves to be looked up to. He dedicated his life to something positive and has achieved to it’s highest form. We can’t deny that.

    Oh yeah, Nae, you must be a fuck*n fag. Chill

    It’s hard to believe that kids look up to punk ass athletes that make millions playing with balls, when they should look up to military, firefighters, and police. I’m only a kid , 18 and in the USMC. If kids looked up to me the way they looked up to Kobe Bryant, i would make sure i would leave inapropriate examples away from their view. This is disrespectful to me, because it tells me i fight to let morons like this screw up kids .

    So much ignorance on these postings, it’s such a shame we are surrounded by so many clueless, disrespectful, so called human beings in this world!!

    Dan, I agree with the valid points you make in your posts, and responding to un-educated individuals is probably not the best use of your time. Society today is unfortunately filled with these types, but not to worry judgment day comes to us all sooner or later and I’m sure they will be the 1st on bended knee begging for forgiveness for being so hateful & shallow including the overpaid, overrated Kobe Bryant.

    Lastly.. he got off easy, they should have suspended him and fined him just so he could see how it feels to be singled out like so many people are these days by all these negative connotations people so easily allow to flow out of their immoral mouths!!

    Karma really is a b#tch people!!

    There are many meanings to the word Faggot.


    It was not created to be a gay slur at all. Get over it especially you Dan B. When someone uses a word maliciously or with intent to hurt, then yes it is wrong. When someone uses a word, or even tells a joke that isn’t intended to be harmful, then the person who gets offended is at fault. If I were to tell a joke, and I was intending to be funny, and you got offended, that is your own fault , not mine. I’m not telling the joke with hurtful intent. Society has become so numb to sex, drugs, violence…etc. Just look at tv, or the movies, but when someone says something out of anger, everyone gets offended. Grow Up!!

    wow $100,000 for saying “fucking faggot”…ru kidding me? that is total bullcrap. This gay rights crap is ridiculous. My bestfriend is gay and has no problem with that word. In case no one here knows by definition it means: “a bundle of sticks.” Its not his fault that the camera happened to be on him at that momoent either, i mean come on people get over it!

    molo: Really? Masters in speech therapy? You can clearly see his lips come together, which will usually only happen with a few letter sounds, including the “f” sound. For it to be “jag-off,” his lips can’t come together. Also, if you acknowledge the fact that the first word is “fucking,” or “freaking,” you should be able to see that the second word begins with the exact same lip movement as the first. He used a derogatory slur toward a ref when he was clearly pissed off and not thinking straight, and got punished for it.

    Bud S.: It is not being PC, it is being respectful to a large community of people that take offense when people like you think it is OK to say anything you want to. If Kobe sat down and said anything that you took offense to, you would probably be on here raising hell.

    No one should be punished for using any derogatory term about anyone. They are only words. Get over it. PC has run amuck.

    What about the fact that he slugs his teammate as he sits down? The dude needs to show a little more class.

    I have a masters in speech therapy.

    He clearly said “Benny” !

    “You freakin Jag” ! (as in jag-off).

    Last time I checked its not a homophobic slur.

    You’re missing my point. Just because he didn’t mean it to be homophobic, doesn’t make it ok. The word “fag” is most often used in a derogatory manner against gays. I understand it’s what boys call other boys in the heat of gameplay, but it is a hurtful word. Do you think Kobe would like me, a white man, to come up to him and say, “My nigga, good game!”? I don’t mean it in a racist way, so it’s ok by your logic.

    Also, way cool way to finish your post by calling my comments “retarded.”

    Dan B. You misunderstood my point. The point I was making was that I’m pretty sure Kobe did not use the word ‘fag’ as a homophobic slur. He used the word ‘fag’ in the other way. It has several meanings. Look up the history of the word first before you post your retarded comments on this cool website.

    Really Douglas? So I guess black people should get over us whiteys using the N word any time we get angry cuz that word is never going away either. Really ignorant man. The word IS homophobic. It is used to slander gay men and make them feel less than. Using it on a basketball court or any other sports arena, it is used in the same way…”You’re a fag, you are beneath me.” Calling a guy a “pussy” isn’t cool either because you’re saying the same thing…”You’re nothing but a woman, and women are beneath men, or at least that’s where they should be.” Grow up and think about the words you use and how they affect the people around you.

    Oh it’s clear that he said it. It’s was easy to see. You could tell that he was frustrated and he let the anger get the best of him.
