The NBA has announced its punishment for Meyers Leonard and fans feel like the Miami Heat power forward got off easy.

Earlier this week, Leonard was seen blurting out an anti-Semitic slur while playing “Call of Duty” during a live Twitch stream.

F*cking cowards. Don’t f*cking snipe me, you k*ke b*tch

On Thursday, the league announced they were fining Leonard $50k, suspending from all Heat facilities and team activities for one week, and requiring him to attend diversity training.

“Meyers Leonard’s comment was inexcusable and hurtful and such an offensive term has no place in the NBA or in our society,” “Yesterday, he spoke to representatives of the Anti-Defamation League to better understand the impact of his words and we accept that he is genuinely remorseful. We have further communicated to Meyers that derogatory comments like this will not be tolerated and that he will be expected to uphold the core values of our league — equality, tolerance, inclusion and respect — at all times moving forward.”

While $50k is the largest fine Leonard cold inquire due to the CBA, fans still felt he got a slap on the wrist.
