Kobe Bryant Praises Magic Johnson For Supporting Gay Son

Count Kobe Bryant as a pro athlete in support of tolerance.

When TMZ spotted Lakers legend Magic Johnson’s son EJ out with his boyfriend, Magic was quick to let the world know that he and his wife supported their son 100%.

Lakers star Kobe Bryant seconds that sentiment. He told TMZ: “Of course Magic is supportive of and loves his son. Why should anyone be surprised?” adding, “What I can’t tolerate is a lack of tolerance.” With both of these basketball players having a huge influence in their respective fields, this could be the start of the sports community finally embracing the LGBT community.
