Skip to comments.Roy Hibbert fined, apologizes for slur
Posted on 06/02/2013 4:33:35 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
The NBA has fined Roy Hibbert $75,000 after the Indiana Pacers center used a gay slur in one answer and a profanity in another during his news conference Saturday following Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Hibbert ended a response to a question about his defense on Miami Heat star LeBron James with "no homo."
The NBA responded less than 24 hours later, announcing Sunday in a release that Hibbert was fined for "using inappropriate and vulgar language." The fine was handed down after Hibbert issued an apology Sunday morning, saying in a statement that he sincerely has "deep regret over my choice of words last night."

Recently ~ like within the last two weeks broadcast television networks and the major drama networks dropped ALL of their homosexual themed shows for the coming season.
It's a brand that seems to have overstayed its welcome, and is decaying in plain site. The jocks who own pro-sports don't get it ~ as usual.
Really? Modern Family got dropped as well? I’m dubious of that.
Wonder how long Blacks will put up with homos taking their money for being offended...
Ouch, most of the comments seem to be from people sick of PC.
Homos suck. Truth. Not a slur.
Wow, tharpt is an excessive fine.
As I suspected, although this would be a huge fine for most of us, it’s mere pocket change for Hibbert.
I looked around, and found this:
Roy Hibbert is signed for 4 years / $58.37 million with the Indiana Pacers. He is making $13.67 million in 2012-2013.
Is the NBA saying that LeBron James is homosexual?
http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2013/05/13/gay_tv_shows_cancelled_the_new_normal_smash_go_on_and_more_video.html ~ but modern family wasn’t dropped ~ frankly, I’ve never seen it ~ hardly has enough characters to constitute any sort of family anyway. I start on the high side with 30 first cousins ~ aunts and uncles falling out of the trees, and all that sort of thing. I don’t think that show has enough characters to hold to a serious story line.
Homos blow. Truth. Not a slur.
Wonder what “God Bless the USA” would have cost him?
Hibbert gets fined for saying “no homo” yet some dude goes on the Bill Maher show and says that he wishes ALL Republicans die and not a peep from the press demanding an apology..this country is so screwed with its thinking
The NBA is gay!
Hibbert should have ended the sentence with “Allah Akbar” he would have gotten away with it
I think it would be comical to see the reaction if someone used the word “gay” as meaning happy. “Oh, that guy? He is so gay. Wow man, look at him, he is so gay!” And then after being challenged and the PC police on Twitter and ESPN criticize, he can say “What? He just won a big game. He is rich and young. I saw him smile, laugh and celebrate. He is gay...I mean happy.”
The fascist bastards are gonna fine ya anyway, in flagrant violation of 1A, so F'em
More proof of a once-fine country going just plain silly.
But then, 2008 proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.
All NBA team next year...
That show survives because it has a beautiful woman on it.
He needs more support. Get a bunch of those athletes in unison-or not-to say the same things. THEN see what happens! I doubt any of the group will be white.
One of the comments was, ‘should he get his money back if he says ‘yeshomo’?’
Could care less about what happens with THUGBALL
Quick question ~ ‘homosexual themed’ means ‘homosexual themed’ ~ was that modern family show ‘themed’ that way, or they just happened to have a part time clown who turned tricks or something?
I’m guessing the NBA feels ecstatic they’ve kept the support of the 5 homos who watch the sport.
Adrian Peterson also indicated he wasn’t thrilled with gays either last week. I hope more pros “come out” to denounce the perv life.
Thugball season starts in late August and ends with the Super Bowl.
Maybe all the faggots are converging on one show and giving it enough ratings to survive for the time being.
What was vulgar about that?
Yes being a homosexual itself is vulgar but our President thinks they are heroes so..............
LOL, some of those comments are hilarious. Yep, sports fans aren’t PC.
The gov’t didn’t fine him, his employer did. 1A refers to gov’t, not private businesses.
