John Wall posted an apology on Sunday after a leaked video went viral showing him throwing up gang signs and middle fingers next to another person.

The Washington Wizards point guard addressed the situation on Twitter.

[WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

This didn’t necessarily feel like a situation that elicited an apology; although Wall has been captured on video throwing up gang signs in the middle of NBA games before.

But alas, the new video surfaced on Sunday morning and quickly went viral across the web. Wall immediately apologized and we will all soon move on.

    I’m thinking it was just an attempt to bring attention to racial equity and BLM movements.

    No worries at all! The only one who should be apologizing is the dumbass friend of his who leaked or posted the video! If it was Joe Blow it wouldn’t even be a mention or a story at all
    Cheers BBN! Cheers John Wall!!

      Black people account for 13% of the population and 50% of violent crime. Could it have anything to do their celebrities promoting gang culture? Tune in at 11 to find out how police are to blame!

      Careful Bowden, when you bring facts some will consider you a racist. Celebrate the criminals and defund the police. John made a mistake and he owned it. GO CATS!!!

      Bowden, blacks don’t account for 50% of violent crimes, they get wrongly, and disproportionately prosecuted to different extents. No debate in that bud.

      Said the ostrich with head firmly planted in the sand.

      Fun fact….ostrich’s don’t really bury their heads in the sand. The story was first recorded by the Roman writer Pliny the Elder, who suggested that ostriches hide their heads in bushes. Ostriches don’t hide, either in bushes or sand, although they do sometimes lie on the ground to make themselves inconspicuous. The ‘burying their head in the sand’ myth is likely to have originated from people observing them lowering their heads when feeding.

      Most humans on the other hand live with their heads in the sand, figuratively speaking of course.

    If this were a former Duke, UNC or Louisville player, there would be 100 comments. And Matt Jones would have written this article.

    The problem is for John Wall and his friends this is a joke (hopefully) BUT for the kids on the streets of Chicago, Detroit, New York and LA it’s life or death. How many young kids lost their lives this weekend because of gang violence? How many of those kids were black? Like it or not John Wall (and all celebrities for that matter) must be positive role models for kids in these communities. Wall has done tons of good work so I give him a pass here but I do believe it warranted an apology.
