Miami Heat publicly condemns Meyers Leonard, says he will be away from team indefinitely

Meyers Leonard Miami Heat

Miami Heat center Meyers Leonard made headlines on Tuesday after a video of him using an anti-Semitic slur was leaked.

The slur was leaked via one of his Twitch streams while he was playing the game “Call of Duty: Warzone.”

The clip immediately went viral and the center was quickly denounced and lambasted via social media. Leonard offered a lengthy apology shortly after, saying he did not know what the meaning of the slur meant.

After rumors of the team and NBA investigating into the issue, the Heat have announced that Leonard will be away from the team indefinitely as it looks deeper into the situation.

Leonard is out for the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury and will likely not be returning to the team next season as it has a team option for the final year of his contract.
