NBA star (and one-time rapper) Kobe Bryant is the latest sports star to take a firm pro-gay stand publicly.

It all started when Twitter user PacSmoove, who goes by Michael and claims to live in East Africa, called another user Pookeo9 (god I hate writing about Twitter) gay.

To which Bryant responded:

Apparently Bryant has learned a thing or two since 2011, when he was fined $100,000 for calling a referee a "fucking fag."

And, honestly, I'm thrilled that Kobe would take a stand against homophobia, but I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that a man wanting to lie in bed and make out with another man is, in fact, gay.
