If the Xbox Live Policy and Enforcement Team find that it violates the Code of Conduct or Terms of Use then yes.  But they only way for you to figure out if you will get in trouble for something is to read the Code of Conduct and Xbox Live Terms of Use and think is this allowed before you use it.  Here are the links to both legal documents:

Are you homosexual? If not, then I can only imagine one reason why you'd choose it. To provoke.

It looks and sounds very derogatory. And more times than not, it normally is. I say keep it, and if you get banned, then you'll have your answer.

It just depends on who sees it. Someone will probably view it the wrong way. I would recommend you get a new gamertag or pay to change it. The odds of being banned are high, as some people WILL take offense to that. The right way to use it, is "any of a genus (Homo) of hominids that includes modern humans (H. sapiens) and several extinct related species (as H. erectus and H. habilis)".
