NBA star Kobe Bryant from Los Angeles Lakers was fined $100,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for a gay slur that was caught on camera. The Baketball Player apologizes fro his behaviour
Bryant apologized Wednesday and said that his comments “should not be taken literally,” but he also said that he will appeal the fine.
After receiving a technical foul during Tuesday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, Bryant stormed to the bench, hit his seat before sitting down, threw a towel and then yelled “Bennie!” toward referee Bennie Adams. Bryant then leaned back and muttered a gay slur.
The episode was caught on camera on TNT’s national telecast, prompting announcer Steve Kerr to say: “You might wanna take the cameras off of him right now, for the children watching from home.”
