Miami Heat’s Meyers Leonard uses anti-Semitic slur during video game stream

The Miami Heat are reviewing a video of injured forward-center Meyers Leonard using an anti-Semitic slur while playing a video game on Monday.

Leonard is seen playing the "Call of Duty" game and is recorded using the slur while engaged with another gamer on Twitch, where Meyers often plays.

Heat owner Mickey Arison, and son, Nick, who is the Heat CEO, are Jewish.

“We are shocked and disappointed to see  @MeyersLeonard use this ugly, offensive #antisemitic slur. We have reached out to the @MiamiHEAT and  @NBA about this and urge Mr. Leonard to issue an apology immediately for this egregious and hateful rhetoric,” the Anti-Defamation League posted on Twitter.
