Anthony Edwards apologies after posting homophobic video to his Instagram story this weekend.
For most celebrities they keep their main Instagram account clean and unproblematic, most have what’s known as a “finsta“. On the Finsta is only the most trusted associates of the person and allows them to post whatever they want without fear of cancelation. If you’ve been allowed to follow one you know its only two types , the extra wild opinions and craziness or just regular thoughts and opinion videos, there is literally no in between. This is allegedly the case with Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards who posted a video to his regular Instagram account instead of his Finsta. Of course users recored the video and immediately took it to Twitter.

Anthony Edwards Apologies For Homophobic Video Posted On Instagram Say’s He Wasn’t “Raised That Way”
The video in question showed Edwards recording a group of people from his vehicle and making homophobic remarks about them.
“Look at these queer a** n****s, man. Look at the world I came to.” Edwards joked. “These n****s different,”
Not a good look for a universally liked player who has always been unproblematic on and off the court. It didn’t take long for the video to go viral and soon came the inevitable apology. In his defense the apology seemed genuine and hopefully is accepted.
You can read his apology below.
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!
