Ja Morant is once again facing backlash after a video surfaced of him flashing a gun on Instagram Live, just months after he was suspended eight games for the exact same thing.
The video shows Morant sitting in a car with another person listening to NBA YoungBoy. As the camera pans toward Morant, you briefly see he is holding a gun before the camera quickly cuts away.
This is the second time Morant has found himself brandishing a gun on camera in as many months. In March, the Memphis Grizzlies star was seen on Instagram Live holding a weapon inside a Glendale, Colorado, strip club. Morant admitted that he was foolish for brandishing the gun but denied it was his.
The 23-year-old apologized for his actions and left the team to begin counseling. The league suspended him for eight games without pay. After an investigation, Glendale Police announced that “there was not enough available evidence to charge” him with a crime.
