Chiefs Fans to Owner: Fire Larry Johnson!!

11/4/2009 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Larry JohnsonLarry Johnson is roughly 80 yards away from becoming the all time leading rusher for the Kansas City Chiefs -- but after his anti-gay slur scandal last week, Chiefs fans want him off the team before he has a chance to make history.

Hundreds of loyal Chiefs fans have signed a petition, begging the team owner to keep Larry Johnson's name out of the Chiefs Hall of Fame forever.

The petition reads:

"Larry has been a black eye on the organization ... We are asking you, as fans of this team, this organization, and of the pride that this city has in the Chiefs, please deactivate Larry Johnson.

Please do not let his name sit atop the all-time rushing leaders in Kansas City Chiefs history."


We spoke to one of the fans behind the petition, Andy Phelan, who tells us: "I would love it if we never see Larry Johnson in a Chiefs uniform again ... He's a cancer in the locker room."

PEOPLE!!!! You are missing the point. This ISN'T about him using the word f*g. You are all so quick to yell "freedom of speech" that you are missing what this story is about. I swear some are you are so shortsighted it's sad. And TMZ you s*ck for putting the spin on it that you have. He has a LONG history of bad behavior. This one incident isn't the reason that their fans are saying "enough".

LJ has a long history of running his mouth, treating has fans poorly, and assaulting women. He considers himself better than everyone else (made a comment about being above all those minimum wagers out there making $10/hour). I've personally ran into him at a local bar, and he is a complete a-hole. He wanted customers kicked off a table so he could have it..."because he deserves it". When the management refused he made a big show of storming out of the place like a big baby. I've also watched Gonzales and Allen stand along the wall and drink because there weren't any tables available at the same bar. And they were very friendly about it (unfortunately they were the players traded away and not LJ).

He has made it clear he doesn't like KC and doesn't want to be here. We are making it clear we don't want him here. Also the only year he bothered playing well was during a contract year. Now all he does is show up, he gave up actually playing after that year.

This petition isn't really about the gay slur. They are using that, because it's what is getting the most press now. Larry Johnson has had multiple incidents of beating up on women, he has a terrible snotty attitude and right before the gay slur he was publicly ripping on his coach. He is an ass and disgusting to be a part of the team. He in no way deserves to replace Priest Holmes' name in the record books. He needs to just go away, he had a couple lucky years and hasn't produced crap since then!

Awwww, Straight, married, female, did I hurt your wittle feelings? Your damn right I'm angry. My country is under assault on Free speech and idiots like you have elected a socialist pig as our president who calls himself a constitutional scholar but never makes a decision based on the constitution and it's values. Aids has killed millions because gay men exchange infected blood through anal sex. Yet you support all of this regardless. Right. The truth be known, you are not straight, married, female but gay, single, male. Am I right. Homosexuals democrats lie constantly. Wouldn't want to be you when you are leaving this world. And you find out that there really is a "God". Hypocrite!

Democrats are evil-No,you aren't right. I'm not a gay man. I'm a mother of two who lives
in the midwest. And you didn't hurt my feelings because I wouldn't
give you that power. You don't know what I support. Your supposition
is ridiculous. I am, in fact a conservative (and vote that way) and a
Christian. I have no fear of where I am going when I leave this
earth. You may not agree with the homosexual lifestyle but it isn't
your place to judge them either. "Judge not..." you know the rest,
right?
You answered that you are in fact angry. You have that right. I'm not
happy about the direction that the country is headed either. -but you
can hardly blame it on gay people. Let go of your anger-it hurts no
one but yourself. Maybe you should pray for some inner peace instead
of spreading hate and discontent.

What a bunch of Fa$$ots! LMAO! Chiefs suck with or without Larry. Every one of us have the FREEDOM of SPEECH! Welcome to the USA!

But the real point is, the people that are protesting probably do not even know anything about the game of football. Why you all so sensitive to someone speakin their mind???

Get over it already!

Are you all blind? Read some of the other posts. This is about the 5th article on LJ and the f slur. THAT is not why the fans are upset with him. TMZ continues to leave out the truth to get a response. If you want facts this is not the place to get them!!!
