Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant apologized Sunday for sharing a controversial image on social media:
According to TMZ Sports, Morant posted the image on Twitter with the caption, "want dat on my jersey fr."
The 20-year-old clarified his message Sunday, stating in part:
"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 is one of several NBA players who have used their platform to speak out on social issues over the past month following the killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis.
