K.C. Chiefs dump player who called reporters faggots

The Kansas City Chiefs football team released running back Larry Johnson from the team Nov. 9 after he called reporters faggots and called a fellow Twitter user a fag.

In the locker room Oct. 26, Johnson muttered to reporters, “Get your faggot ass out of here.” The remark was captured on tape.

A day earlier, he used his Twitter account to call another Twitter user a “fag.” He also reportedly tweeted: “Make me regret it. Lmao. U don’t stop my checks. Lmao. So ‘tweet’ away.”

Johnson later apologized for the outbursts, saying he hadn’t intended to be offensive and had not been “a good role model (for) the kids who view athletes as role models.”
