A’s outfielder hurls gay slur at fan during heated exchange, So what?

How is this newsworthy? 
Hecklers are allowed to say anything they want and ballplayers can't?  Calling a guy a gay slur is a common practice before the fights starts.  It was nothing to do with actually being Gay.  It's a street thing that's been around for centuries. 

NY Post reports Oakland Athletics outfielder Matt Joyce got into an argument with a fan and called him a gay slur during Friday night’s game against the Los Angeles Angels.

The exchange occurred in the eighth inning of Los Angeles’ 8-6 win after Angels first baseman C.J. Cron made a diving stop of Joyce’s hard-hit grounder.

As Joyce returned to the dugout, he uttered several profanities at the fan, called him a gay slur and challenged him to fight, according to Associated Press photographer Mark J. Terrill, who overheard the exchange.
