Al Horfords Sister Ethers Meyers Leonard After He Posted Apology

Al Horford’s sister is not a fan of Meyers Leonard. The sister of Oklahoma City Thunder forward Al Horford angrily dismissed the apology of Miami Heat center Meyers Leonard, capping a string of blistering criticisms of the big man, who was captured on video making an anti-Semitic remark.

Leonard was seen playing “Call of Duty: Warzone,” and said “F—–g cowards, don’t f—–g snipe at me you f—–g k— b—-.”


Leonard issued an apology for the incident:

“I am deeply sorry for using an anti-Semitic slur during a livestream yesterday. While I 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. I am now more aware of its meaning and I am committed to properly seeking out people who can help educate me about this type of hate and how we can fight it.

I acknowledge and my own mistake and there’s no running from something like this that is so hurtful to someone else. This is not a proper representation of who I am and I want to apologize to the Arisons, my teammates, coaches, front office and everyone associated with the Miami Heat organization, to my family, to our loyal fans and to others in the Jewish community who I have hurt. I promise to do better and know that my future actions will be more powerful than my use of this word.”

Then she went in some more following his apology:

Al Horford’s sister doesn’t mess around.

If she wasn’t Al Horford’s sister would anyone care? Probably not.
