Hoo boy, if this clip of Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant calling someone a “f–king f-ggot” on cable television goes viral, expect the backlash to be huge. Not huge like when he was accused of sexual assault in Colorado, but close.

And this being the Internet age and all, chances are it will go viral…and quick.

Apparently Kobe was upset with his fourth foul call during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs, and when he complained to the ref about what he deemed a bad call, Bryant got T’d up. So Phil Jackson made him take a seat, and rightly so, seeing that Kobe picked up his fourth foul with about six minutes left in the third quarter.

The TNT cameraman followed Kobe to the bench, where he threw a towel in disgust, before calling out to someone on the floor, and then dropping the gay slur…with the camera still squarely focused on Bryant. You don’t have to be an expert lip reader to realize exactly what Kobe had said, which will make it all the more difficult for the Lakers guard to deny, deny, deny.

Video follows the jump (skip to 33 seconds for the incident)…

Kobe and the Lakers better start working on his apology now, because you know that GLAAD, and other gay and lesbian defamation groups, will be calling for a) a formal apology, and b) Kobe’s head on a platter.
