TMZ quotes Larry Johnson's agent claiming that he didn't know that using "fag" or "faggots" is offensive.

Here's what TMZ says agent Peter Schaffer had to say about the now-suspended Chiefs running back's repeated use of homophobic slurs:

"We know the N-word is unacceptable, that's not disputable -- but f*g? I'm learning that there's a segment of our society that finds it offensive and that it should not be used. I didn't realize that, but I do know now..."

A segment of society? Like say the segment that isn't homophobic?

Anyway, Schaffer told The Kansas City Star that he's negotiating a settlement with the Chiefs to resolve LJ's future -- and settlement doesn't necessarily mean Johnson will be leaving KC.
