Kobe Bryant Fined $100K for Anti-Gay Slur

Exclusive Audio Chat with Malcolm Lazin
about Equality Forum 2011 the largest LGBT

Summit April 25th to May 1st in Philly


After Kobe Bryant showed his true homophobic colors
by yelling the ultimate anti-gay slur at last night’s game
the NBA took action with pressure from GLAAD & HRC.
Kobe was fined $100, 000 & NBA Commissioner David
Stern stated, “Kobe & everyone associated with the NBA
know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not
acceptable & have no place in our game or society."
Recently, GLAAD worked with the New York Yankees &
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to address issues
of homophobia in sports. After working with GLAAD, the
New York Yankees adopted a new policy that strictly
prohibits anti-gay slurs in Yankee Stadium.

The NBA has sent a clear message to sports fans everywhere that anti-gay slurs have no place in the game. When such a prolific cultural institution like the NBA speaks out against hateful words, we are reminded that fair-minded Americans are siding with equality for all. This decision will serve as an important precedent that will help ensure a safer, more inclusive environment for fans and players everywhere, and we look forward to continuing our dialogue with the NBA.

Jarrett Barrios, President of GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation)
