Ja Morant on Instagram Live

NBA player Ja Morant has been formally suspended from the team following his second time brandishing a firearm while live on Instagram. The first event, which took place in early March, earned him a minor suspension while an investigation was done and cleared him of any criminal misconduct. After his first incident, Ja Morant apologized for his behavior, which was welcomed by fans of his game, while others said he was merely apologizing because he was forced to and didn't mean it.

However, it didn't take Ja Morant long to end up right back where he started. Once again, he found himself on Instagram Live singing along to NBA Youngboy and brandishing yet another firearm. This time, however, instead of being inside of a club environment, he was in a car with several friends, but the league did not take kindly to the repeat offender. After being suspended for eight games back in March, the Memphis Grizzlies announced that he was suspended from all team venues and connections pending a full investigation by the league. Reactions to the newest video are vastly different from the first, with many people berating Morant or making memes based on the situation because of his previous apology.
