Anthony Edwards is apologizing for a homophobic comment he made, saying there’s no excuse for what was said, TMZ reports.

According to the report by TMZ, the Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards took to Twitter Sunday, writing:

 “What I said was immature, hurtful, and disrespectful, and I’m incredibly sorry. It’s unacceptable for me or anyone to use that language in such a hurtful way, there’s no excuse for it, at all. I was raised better than that!”

He’s referring to a video that was posted to his Instagram Story in the past day or so, where he’s in the car looking at a group of shirtless men on the sidewalk across the way.

Some of the guys are hugging and embracing each other, and Anthony Edwards says: “Look at these queer ass n****s, man. Look at the world I came to.” There’s a woman with him laughing in the passenger seat. There was a caption too … “Dese n****s different.”

It’s unclear where exactly he was when he shot this, or when exactly it was filmed, but in any case, it appears to have been briefly featured on his very public page.

This is a big deal, Edwards is a rising star in the league, so his words carry weight. The team doesn’t appear to have addressed the issue just yet, ditto for the NBA. Unclear what sort of punishment, if any, he’ll receive, TMZ report revealed.
