“Ja Morant suspended and investigated by NBA after flashing gun on Instagram Live video”

Memphis Grizzlies star, Ja Morant, has been suspended for at least two games, following an incident on his Instagram Live. In a video posted on Tuesday, Morant appeared to flash a gun. The video was captured and subsequently circulated on social media, and prompted an investigation by the NBA. The league determined that Morant had indeed displayed a firearm, and suspended him without pay for the upcoming games against the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat.

This isn’t the only controversy surrounding Morant in recent days. The video of him flashing the gun was reportedly shot during a visit to a strip club, and it has now emerged that police were called to the establishment later that night. According to a report by the New York Post, Morant had been involved in an altercation with another patron, and police were called to the scene. The incident allegedly delayed Morant’s departure, leading to further drama.

The gun incident has prompted a mixed response on social media. Some fans have been quick to defend Morant, arguing that he wasn’t doing anything wrong and that the suspension is too severe. Others, however, have criticized the young star, pointing out that it is never appropriate to brandish a weapon in public, and that such behavior sets a bad example for his fans.

Despite the controversy, Morant himself has remained largely quiet on the matter. He has not issued a public statement or apology, and has not commented on the incident on social media. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, have issued a brief statement in support of their player, describing the suspension as a “teachable moment” and expressing their hope that Morant will learn from the experience.
