Meyers Leonard got a bit too hyped up while playing Call Of Duty on Twitch and may have found himself in trouble with the NBA.

On Tuesday afternoon, a video of Leonard yelling out the anti-Semitic slur “k*ke” while playing COD during a live stream went viral.

Fucking cowards. Don’t fucking snipe me, you k*ke bitch

Moments later someone called Leonard and informed him about the situation. Leonard immediately jumped off the stream after the call.

It is worth noting that Miami Heat owner Micky Arison is Jewish who hosts an annual Jewish heritage night at American Airlines Arena.

Update: Leonard is apparently an investor in the popular e-Sports group FaZe caln and the company is set to release a statement soon.
