Kobe Bryant fined $100,000 for gay slur

So it seems that Bryant was fined $100,000 for making some kind of comment about gays to a referee when he didn't like the call the ref made. Whether or not Bryant should have said the slur is another story, having to lose $100,000 for calling someone, anyone, a name is highway robbery. Freaken fags.

Kobe signed a contract that calls for his behavior to remain within certain paramaters - he strayed

I guess thats the price for making millions a year

Boo hoo

You can go and call people names without getting fined all you want

It's all a matter of scale. $100 000 for him is like $10.95 for you.

Still but whoever heard of getting a hundred thousand large just for getting called a name? O.o It's insane.

How about Dior's designer John Galliano who didn't just lose $100K, but his job? Did you complain about that one too?

There are expectations and standards that people in the public eye have to live up to. Simple as that.

John Galliano didn't just give a random insult. According to Wikipedia,

In the video drunk Galliano hurls anti-semitic rants at a group of Italian women and declares "I love Hitler... People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers would all be fucking gassed." This incident happened just before Paris Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2011/2012.

That being said I think that Charlie Sheen using Chuck Lorre's Hebrew name should not be cause for being insulted, and I know this is gonna piss some jews off but I don't even see a problem with Mel Gibson.
