Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was told to stay away from the team yesterday while the NFL and the Chiefs complete their investigation into his use of a homosexual slur twice this week. Johnson issued an apology, and a national gay rights advocacy organization called on the league and the team to take action against the two-time Pro Bowl back.
The latest chapter in Johnson’s stormy career began Sunday night when he questioned coach Todd Haley’s football credentials on his Twitter account. He used the slur during an exchange with one of his Twitter followers. On Monday, Johnson used the slur again as he brushed off reporters and told them he would not comment, according to the Kansas City Star, which recorded the comment.
The Chiefs said they have told Johnson he would not be allowed to practice with the team or participate in team activities until the matter was resolved.
