Anthony Edward’s Blatantly Homophobic Instagram Story Might End Up Costing Him Millions


Anthony Edwards is undeniably one of the top young players in the league right now. The competitive Wolves guard was the No.1 pick of the 2020 NBA Draft and was instrumental in helping the Wolves reach the playoffs in this past season.

After an encouraging rookie debut with the Wolves, Edwards picked up where he left off and showed better output in his sophomore year with averages of 21.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game on 44.1% shooting from the field.

He shined in the play-in tournament which happened to be one of the biggest games of his career so far, putting up 30 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists on 47.6% shooting to lead the team past the Los Angeles Clippers.

Although Edwards and the Wolves didn’t have much luck in the playoffs, hopes on the 20-year old swingman remain high. This, and his outgoing and fun personality has also led to Edwards becoming a popular and marketable figure for companies.

He has plenty of sponsorships and even has become one of the new faces of Sprite, that has always had close ties to the NBA.

But unfortunately for Edwards his marketability may change after he posted a homophobic Story on Instagram. While Ant is one of the most marketable young players out there, sponsors might look elsewhere for a safer brand representative, after seeing the video.



Edwards, in the meantime, has realized the mistake he made and posted an apology via his social media channels.

“What I said was immature, hurtful, and disrespectful, and I’m incredibly sorry. It’s unacceptable for me or anyone to use that language in such a hurtful way, there’s no excuse for it, at all. I was raised better than that!”
