Former Illinois men’s basketball player Meyers Leonard, who currently plays for the Miami Heat, is under fire for dropping an anti-Semitic slur during a streaming session of the video game Call of Duty.
Leonard, who went to high school in Robinson, Illinois, graduated from the U of I in 2012, drafted #11 overall by the Portland Trail Blazers.
Leonard was in the news last year for standing during the national anthem while simultaneously pledging his support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Here’s the video which contains the slur, so be forewarned before viewing.
