New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman offered a wise piece of advice to Miami Heat big man Meyers Leonard after he blurted an anti-Semitic comment while playing a video game that has gone viral over the past day. He claimed that Leonard’s remarks were born out of casual ignorance and that he is often hanging out in Miami if ever the NBA player decides to have a talk with him.

The three-time Super Bowl champion definitely knows a thing or two about the Jewish culture as he proudly identifies himself as a Jew despite growing up in California.

Meanwhile, Meyers Leonard was quickly warned about his comments which led him to issue an apology for everyone that was affected by his words.

Via CNN:

“I am deeply sorry for using an anti-Semitic slur during a livestream yesterday,” Leonard wrote in an Instagram post, adding that he didn’t know what the word meant at the time. “My ignorance about its history and how offensive it is to the Jewish community is absolutely not an excuse and I was just wrong.”

Since then, the Heat organization also imposed an indefinite ban on Leonard for his actions, saying that they ‘vehemently condemn the use of any form of hate speech’, via an official statement.

The 29-year-old forward is currently in his second year with the Heat and has just played three games this season. He is already ruled out for the remainder of their 2020-21 campaign due to a season-ending shoulder surgery received back in February.

Hopefully, Meyers Leonard will take the time to educate himself through various means in order to avoid any inadvertent use of racial slurs moving forward.
