Kobe Bryant’s Call Of Duty Ad: Would Controversy Be Same For Other Stars?

Yesterday I defended Kobe Bryant appearing in the ad for "Call of Duty: Black Ops."

I did this after reading an article by Tim Keown criticizing Kobe for it as he wrote it to make it seem like Kobe was promoting street violence, as well as Skip "Clueless" Bayless' criticisms of it where he called for David Stern to fine or suspend Kobe for appearing in the ad and his interpretation of it minimizing what our troops overseas have to really go through.

I pointed out how wrong they both were and how right Kobe was, and after that, a slew of articles touching on the same things came about.

Now I'm wondering though, what if it were some other sports stars that appeared in it? What would the reaction be?

Let's take a look.
