A Gay Former N.B.A. Player Responds to Kobe Bryant by John Amaechi
Kobe Bryant called a referee who penalized him at a recent game “faggot.” He was fined $100,000 by the NBA and since apologized for the slur, but now he’s fighting the fine. Kobe says he “he was frustrated in the heat of a game,” and didn’t mean it to be interpreted as a slur.
John Amaechi, a former NBA player an since openly gay man, has written a lovely editorial for The New York Times on the matter. He eloquently says, “When someone with the status of Kobe Bryant…hurls that antigay slur at a referee or anyone else…he is telling boys, men and anyone watching that when you are frustrated, when you are as angry as can be, the best way to demean and denigrate a person, even one in a position of power, is to make it clear that you think he is not a real man, but something less.”
I couldn’t word it any perfectly myself, John Amaechi.
