Anthony Edwards is apologizing for a homophobic remark he made … saying there isn’t any excuse for what was stated.
The Timberwolves guard took to Twitter Sunday, writing … “What I stated was immature, hurtful, and disrespectful, and I’m extremely sorry. It’s unacceptable for me or anybody to make use of that language in such a hurtful method, there’s no excuse for it, in any respect. I used to be raised higher than that!”
He is referring to a video that was posted to his Instagram Story up to now day or so — the place he is within the automotive taking a look at a gaggle of shirtless males on the sidewalk throughout the best way.
Among the guys are hugging and embracing one another, and AE says … “Have a look at these queer ass n****s, man. Have a look at the world I got here to.” There is a girl with him laughing within the passenger seat. There was a caption too … “Dese n****s totally different.”
It is unclear the place precisely he was when he shot this, or when precisely it was filmed … however in any case — it seems to have been briefly featured on his very public web page.
It is a large deal … Edwards is a rising star within the league, so his phrases carry weight. The group does not seem to have addressed the problem simply but — ditto for the NBA. Unclear what kind of punishment, if any, he’ll obtain.
