Kobe, Lakers, Make PSA Promoting Acceptance


Kobe: “Words Can Be Hurtful”

After the fallout following Kobe Bryant’s now infamous gay slur heard round the world, the future Hall of Famer and a group of his Laker teammates recently produced a PSA to promote the message of social tolerance.

In the clip, Bryant says,

The are all kinds of people in the world. That’s what makes the world so special.”

The PSA aired by Good Day LA this morning, features Lakers, Paul Gasol, Lamar Odom, Ron Artes, and Shannon Brown who all contribute soundbites.

As previously reported, the Lakers and NBA executives recently met with representatives from GLAAD to discuss how the League should handle homophobic incidents. 

Bryant recently tried to save face by saying he would beat up kids who taunted gays in high school.

    Blah Blah Blah Blah, is all you fake Christians do. You are going to try to justify your sins, by saying when you sin you don’t claiom it, but being gay means they claim it. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL. I feel so bad for you self righteous people who feel that you are any way better off because you read the bible. If you read the bible then why are you constantly sinning like any other person who does not read the bible, or who does not profess to be saved. You can think for as ong as you remain here that you are a good person. You are not. Your comments show it. And I’ll be willing to bet anyone who reads your comments would not guess you to be a spiritual person, or even a religious person. Ther are going t be a lot of peole who go to church and know the bible inside out, in hell. Make sure you worry about your soul and maybe stop trying to worry about who is sleeping with who.
