Kobe doesn't owe them ANYTHING! I'm so sick of homosexuals thinking they 'deserve' things. Because they choose to take their clothes off for people of their own sex does not mean the rest of society should give them special recognition. They're men and women like everyone else. Nothing more and nobody on the NBA owes them their presence at a basketball game. Kobe, don't even think about bowing to this nonsense!

I mean, his words weren't even directed at any homos! This is almost as bad as the lesbian activist lady attacking the teenage boys in the commercial for describing a figurine as 'gay'. These people now 'choose' to be offended by these 'slang' terms. Do the homos now own these words and no one may use them as slang, lest they 'offend' the homo community? Give me a break.

Ok, I think this has gotten way out of hand. I am not homophobic in anyway, but don't want others lifestyles forced on me. I'm also not a big Kobe fan, but this is ridiculous. If he doesn't agree to go to their game, they are going to whine and complain about it. My question is, is the ref gay? If not then how the h*#l is it any of that groups concern.

Funny....when people have called me a b#&@h the ASPCA nor PETA have gotten involved.

I could go on, but I already know at least one person will have something hateful or negative to say because that's the great thing about this country...FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

See.. the only folks who get in a tizzy are the gays who wish to force us all to hold hands nude while doing jumping jacks.

The man apologized, let's move on. No use beating him up with a rainbow belt.

Okay gay community, what he did was wrong, despicable and hateful. He feigned an apology and that is the best you can get. Don't push it or you will lose support. Let bygones be bygones. Don't try to play victim and milk this. Recognize when you've gotten all you can get.
