Anti-Gay Slurs Dominate YouTube Page Showing Leandro Barbosa And Reggie Evans Holding Hands
What we have here is a completely innocuous clip of Toronto Raptors teammates Leandro Barbosa and Reggie Evans holding hands as they make their way to the locker room. It’s not meant to be anything, really, just one (presumably straight) teammate joking around with another (presumably straight) teammate as the cameras are rolling.
But, this being the internet, the YouTube page hosting the video has been inundated with anti-gay language.
None of this is surprising, of course. Anonymous internet commenting turns weak people into weak idiots. But the fact that literally every comment on the video’s YouTube page is either homophobic, or people reprimanding said homophobia, is a nice little example of how touchy a subject homosexuality is in sports.
