Chicago Bulls Star Appears to Hurl Gay Slur at Fan

5/22/2011 7:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joakim Noah pulled a Kobe Byrant during tonight's Chicago Bulls/Miami Heat NBA playoff game ... caught on camera appearing to hurl a gay slur at a fan. 



Noah went to the bench early in the game with his second foul. After a replay, the camera cut back to Noah ... who screamed a few colorful words in the direction of a fan behind the bench.

He ended his screaming appearing to say, "F**k you, f**got."

Unlike Kobe's outburst, the announcer's made no mention of Joakim's.

Why don't we report on every time a celebrity/athlete/public figure uses the "R" word?? Oh ya, because it would be a neverending story, that's why.

To all of you talking about these people suiciding because of words, well, whatever. I say it's just Darwin taking care. If they're that weak that they can't take being called names, like I and many of my sistas have for years, then why should I care if they take themselves out? It's survival of the fittest, and if they're weak enough that they allow themselves to be mind****ed enough to kill themselves, then so be it. Our gene pool rids itself of its weakest links (not that they were going to breed anyway), and the rest of us have more air to breathe. Good riddance.

@ mrgordon.. how the **** did you get on Kobe Bryant? Calling someone a rapist when they have not been charged with a crime is slander. If you don't like his game play kudos to you but he wasn't present for you to start ragging on him for no reason (HATER). That said if the fan wants to be insulting then the player has every right to say something if he wants to. He's only human and shouldn't have to be disrespected because some fan didn't like the fact that their team was losing. Only a real ***got would probably take offense to being called that anyway. I don't see why we have to be so sensitive to the gays.. like get over it already!

Isn't he allowed to hurl "gay" slurs if he looks so gay himself?

Harvey Levin has no problem calling a German man Prince Von A-hole, but as soon as someone says the F-word Harvey springs into action and cant wait to post the offender on TMZ.

Hypocrit!!

people need to quit getting all butthurt over words . . . besides, if it quacks like a duck and all that, don't chose the lifestyle if you can't bear the labels.

TMZ why don't you put a poll up to see if the general public gives a ****? I also believe someone should be stalking the TMZ crew, who's in?

So what? In the big scheme of things, what does it matter? Homosexual behavior is a devient behavior. It is 1% of the population who cannot control their urges. Pretty soon they will say that pedophilia is acceptable. Because these people can't control their urges. Being a homosexual is a choice, it's not like being black/red/brown/white/yellow. You can abstain from homosexual acts, you can't abstain from your color.
