If a description is demonstrably accurate, and in this case there is evidence in support, then since the words used were not simply a term of abuse, perhaps you might consider Bob's approach more acceptable. In any case the tension appears to have eased so to come down, with a heavy hand, when the matter is resolved seems inappropriate.
Now I guess I'd better stand by for excommunication myself but some things just have to be said.
