Some strippers from a Denver, Colorado, club support the NBA suspension for Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies after he allegedly brandished a gun on Instagram Live where they work in March.
Morant was suspended eight games for that incident, and he is suspended again by the league because of a similar gun incident last week.
One stripper from the Denver club says Morant clearly has not learned from his mistakes, nor has he apologized to any of the club’s employees for the March incident.
“I don’t foresee an apology [anytime] soon. He’s a boy,” one dancer told the New York Post
That same stripper even says Morant’s career should be over.
“He’s clearly begging for attention and trying to be a baller,” she said. “He should be banned from all clubs and get his NBA career taken away given our country’s current circumstances on gun violence.”
Another dancer said, “I just wonder about how he’s still on the team.”
This isn’t Morant’s first controversy. It was revealed in March he got into a fight with a teenager at his home during a pickup basketball game last summer and apparently showed off a gun. Morant says he acted in self-defense.
The Indiana Pacers also claimed a confrontation involving Morant and his associates in January impacted the team. During the alleged incident, a red laser was pointed at Pacers players from an SUV that was carrying Morant. The Pacers believed a gun was being pointed at them and reported the incident to NBA officials
