Dang! I'm posting something good about Kobe!!!

Kobe Bryant chides fan on Twitter

Kobe Bryant admonished one of his Twitter followers for using a homophobic insult toward another fan of the Los Angeles Lakers superstar guard.

Bryant, who has nearly 1.3 million Twitter followers, reprimanded a fan who tweeted "You're gay" to another fan.

In response to the insult that was posted Sunday on his own Twitter feed, Bryant tweeted: "Just letting you know@PacSmoove @pookeo9 that using "your gay" as a way to put someone down ain't ok! #notcool delete that out ur vocab."

Bryant was fined $100,000 in April for using a gay slur in a nationally televised game, an incident that NBA commissioner David Stern called "offensive and inexcusable."
