Memphis Grizzlies rookie guard Ja Morant apologized on Twitter yesterday for reposting an anti-police image on social media.
On Sunday, Morant, who wears No. 12, displayed an image that had the word “F—-” and 12 on the back of his jersey.
“My post was intended to focus on the bad cops who get away with the murder of unarmed Black men and women, and those who continue to harass peaceful BLACK LIVES MATTER protestors.
Morant has been involved in the Black Lives Matter cause.
“As a young Black man, I cannot stress enough how disturbing and oppressive it is to know the city still honors a Confederate war general defending white supremacy and hatred,” Morant wrote in a letter to Judge Kenneth C. Imes, per the Paducah Sun.
