Kobe Bryant's Rant Under NBA Review

4/13/2011 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant's homophobic outburst and sideline tantrum is being reviewed by NBA honchos ... TMZ has learned.

Kobe Bryant Playoffs

Our NBA sources say league execs are taking a closer look at last night's game footage -- where Kobe is seen mouthing what looks very much like, "F**king fa**ot."

It's unclear what kind of punishment the league could bring down on Kobe ... but suspension or a fine is a dangerous possibility with the playoffs about to start.

UPDATE: TMZ has learned GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination) has also  contacted the Lakers organization regarding the incident.

I bet 99.9% of everybody could care less about what Kobe said. It's just the PC crowd that has to act offended. Oh by the way I am offended by that remark I just said.

Gee, it is a big deal, since he is endorsing NIKE, and other organizations. The sportcasters mever miss an oportinuity to idolize him, kids look up to him and will immitate him. Yes he should be fined and suspended, cancell all his endorsements. boo,boo and double boo to him.

oh shut up "zen".....you sound like one of those "if everyone doesn't kiss my behind, i'll cry" well guess what, tinkerbell, you (like the countless other "gimme gimme gimme my name is jimmy" types) do nothing more than make yourselves look STUPID! "you complain about the present, and blame it on the past, i'd like to find your inner child and kick its little a-- so GET OVER IT!" (The Eagles/Don Henley)!

EfnSteve...you've got it right. I'm tired of the PC garbage and I'm also tired of the "oh let's worship this person until he/she slips and then we'll kick'em and discard them". here's the thing...NOT ONE OF US IS PERFECT! do yourself a favor (those who are "calling for his head (suspension, fines, such like that)"....get over yourselves...you're not that important!!!!!
