The NBA announced on Tuesday morning that Edwards is in for a fine of $40,000 for making a homophobic comment. President of League Operations for the NBA Byron Spruell added Edwards acknowledged that his comment was not good-natured.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards has been fined $40,000 for using offensive and derogatory language on social media. Edwards has acknowledged that his actions were inappropriate.

Edwards made the comment in a video he posted on social media. In the video, several shirtless men were embracing each other, and he called them queer before saying that the world came to such a state.

Look at these queer ass n****s, man. Look at the world I came to.

The NBA star did release an apology, saying that his comment was immature and disrespectful. This came after the immediate backlash to his comment. While the NBA noted that he apologized, they still pushed a huge fine on him.
