Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah to Fan: ‘F*ck You, Faggot’

You may recall the insane amounts of media coverage that ensued after gay blogs reported that Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant called a referee a faggot on live television. Bryant was fined $100,000 and issued a total non-apology. In the ensuing weeks, many athletes and ancillary figures in the professional sports world have come out of the closet. You’d think anyone paying attention would have learned a valuable lesson. You’d be wrong.

Here we go again…

Chicago Bulls player Joakim Noah one-upped Bryant Sunday by calling a fan seated behind him a faggot. Watch it all go down live on television below.

Seriously, pal? The issue of homophobia in professional sports has received more than enough attention over the past two months for Noah to understand that hate speech like this is completely unacceptable.

Kobe Bryant received the NBA’s two strikes on this issue. Noah should be fired by the Chicago Bulls immediately. If team owners refuse to take a stand against HATE SPEECH like this, it will continue to go one.

Dump the homophobe. Immediately.

  •  I assume you meant “fined” not “fired” right? Because NBA players are pretty much impossible to cut without paying off their whole salary, regardless of what they’ve done

  • Oh hellllll no. He obviously did not get the memo, nor seen the PSAs…sheesh. What a stupidhead.
