'Fag'-Tweeter, Accused Woman-Beater Larry Johnson is Not in Kansas Anymore
And he's outta there! Running back Larry Johnson was just let go (read: fired) by the Kansas City Chiefs.
What Had Happened Was: Two weeks ago Larry publicly questioned his coach Todd Haley's competence on and called a man a "faggot" on Twitter. Of, course! His actual tweet was: "think bout a clever diss then that wit ur faggot pic. Christopher street boy. Is what us east coast cats call u." The day after tweeting the gay slur, he used it again -- in front of the media! While in the locker room, he told reporters: "I'm not talking till Thursday" and then, whispering, "Get your faggot ass out of here."
Suffice it to say, those comments caused a shitstorm of controversy and the Chiefs organization, citing "Conduct Detrimental to the Club" suspended Larry for two weeks.
He was fired yesterday, the day he was scheduled to come back from his two-week suspension
Earlier this year he pleaded guilty to assaulting two women - pushing one and spat in the face of another. He was also rumored to be dating Chili (of TLC fame).
But wait, there's more: According to our friend Wikipedia, "Larry has been arrested four times since 2003 on various assault charges against women. In 2003, he was arrested for felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery for waving a gun at his then-girlfriend, during an argument at his home. The charges were dropped when Johnson agreed to participate in a domestic violence diversion program. In 2005, he was again arrested for assault when a woman accused Johnson of pushing her to the ground, but the case was dropped after the alleged victim failed to appear in court for three different hearings."
So, not only does he offends gays, he assaults women, too.
