Kobe Bryant said something he probably shouldn't have during the Lakers vs San Antonio Spurs game on April 12, 2011. After receiving a technical foul from referee Bennie Adams, Kobe Bryant appeared to swear and use a gay slur.
The Kobe Bryant gay slur video shows the Lakers star sitting on the bench after receiving a technical foul. He angrily throws a towel as the camera cuts to the Spurs shooting a free throw.

The camera then cuts back to Kobe Bryant and he can be heard saying "f---ing faggot!"
The league later rescinded Bryant's technical foul, which means he may have had a right to be angry at the call. Some, however, wonder about the type of language he uses.
Human Rights Campaign -- who told us, "What a disgrace for Kobe Bryant to use such horribly offensive and distasteful language, especially when millions of people are watching."
This is the second week in a row that an athlete has gotten in trouble for foul language. Soccer star Wayne Rooney received a suspension after swearing in front of cameras after scoring a goal against West Ham.
Maybe athletes should clean up their language. No doubt Kobe shouldn't have use such language. But maybe we should also relax a bit, and realize that athletes sometimes use inappropriate language in the heat of competition and forget that cameras are focused on them.
UPDATE: Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 for using a gay slur.
