NBA referee Bill Kennedy, who came out as gay in 2015, has spoken out in an emotional video in response to the weekend shooting that killed five and left 17 others with gunshot wounds at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The 41-second video was released on the NBA’s social media platforms. Kennedy called the shooting heinous. The suspect in the shooting is scheduled to make his first court appearance Wednesday.
