Miami Heat’s Meyers Leonard used an anti-Semitic slur while streaming himself playing the video game Call of Duty on Twitch.

In the video, Leonard can be heard saying, “F—ing cowards, don’t f—ing snipe at me you f—ing k— b–ch.”

Warning: video contains profanity and offensive language:

Shortly after, Leonard received a phone call and then logged off of his livestream.

He told the other gamers that his wife needed him and called him, but his facial expressions during the call indicated otherwise.

A team spokesman said the Heat are aware of the language used by Leonard and are reviewing the video, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

“We just became aware of the video and are in the process of gathering more information. The NBA unequivocally condemns all forms of hate speech,” said NBA spokesman Mike Bass in a statement.

Leonard, 29, is currently out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.
