Minnesota Timberwolves’ star player Anthony Edwards, drafted no. 1 overall in the 2020 NBA draft, apologized this week after he faced some backlash over the weekend for calling a group of men being affectionate with each other “queer a** n****s.”
Edwards made the remarks in a video that was posted to his Instagram account in which he says: “Look at these queer a** n****s, man. Look at the world I came to.”
A caption on the video added, “Dese n****s different.”
