Let’s Thank Kobe Bryant’s “Fucking Faggots” Comment For Moving Queer Rights Center Court

So for those of you who weren’t paying attention: Kobe Bryant called a referee “a fucking faggot”, then the NBA slapped him with a $100,000 fine. Then offered the requisite requisite half-assed apology and claimed to have defended gay kids in grade school (which totally forgives his calling someone a “faggot” now).

To clear his name (I guess) Bryant and his teammates made a shoddy PSA telling everyone to respect everybody everywhere in the entire universe all the time no matter what, you guys! It was definitely a move in the right direction, but it still wasn’t an apology, especially considering last I heard he had appealed the $100,000 fine. Plus it had the warmth of a metal sink and the production quality of the average XTube video. But what’s awesome is that Grant Hill and Jared Dudley of the Phoenix Suns players totally showed Bryant up by making a really great PSA about NOT using gay slurs with GLSEN.
