Lea — who famously plays Big Boo on the show — was leaving the Rolling Stone: Women Shaping the World event in NYC … when we asked for her reaction to Broner’s vile video.
And, since Lea is openly gay … the issue of violent homophobia seemed deeply personal.
“How do I feel about someone using those kind of slurs? I have a bigger issue with anybody who’s threatening gay people with violence simply for being themselves.”
“F*ck all the slurs. I’ll use any f*cking slur I want. What I’m talking about is that a**hole is talking about hurting gay people.”
During his rant (which he posted to social media) Broner said … “If any f*g, punk-ass n**ga come run up on me, trying to touch me on all that gay sh*t, I’m letting you know right now if I ain’t got my gun on me, I’m knocking you the f*ck out.”
Lea says Broner’s language should be considered “hate speech and should be a crime.”
“Freedom of speech comes with responsibility,” Lea added … “You should not be allowed to incite people to violence against other people.”
