Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards apologizes for insults to gay community – Twin Cities


Anthony Edwards issued an apology on his Twitter account on Sunday afternoon after posting a since-deleted video on his Instagram account in which the 21-year-old Timberwolves guard insulted the gay community.

In the post, Edwards took a video of what appeared to be a group of men, called them gay slurs and added “look what the world has done.”

In his apologies, Edwards said. “What I said was immature, hurtful and disrespectful, and I am incredibly sorry. It is unacceptable for me or anyone to use this language in such a hurtful way, there is no excuse for that. , at all. I was raised better than that!

Edwards has established himself as a face of the Timberwolves franchise and a growing fan favorite in the league, not just with his game, but his dynamic personality. The 21-year-old’s comments will challenge that personality for many.

Now, his apology must serve as the first step towards repairing the damage caused, as he strives to prove that he has indeed learned a lesson from this incident.
