Unsurprisingly, the NBA decided to sanction Anthony Edwards. He will have to pay $ 40,000 in fines for offensive and derogatory comments on social networks.
He had posted a story on Instagram where he observes a group of men whom he describes as “queer-ass nig***” before adding: “Look at the world in which I have arrived. »
He quickly deleted this story, but the damage was done and he ended up apologizing on Twitter.
“What I said was immature, hurtful, and disrespectful, and I’m incredibly sorry. It is unacceptable for me or anyone to use this language in such a hurtful way, there is no excuse for it. I was raised better than that! »
