    MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Timberwolves reprimanded star guard Anthony Edwards on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) for homophobic comments he made on an Instagram video and later apologized for.

    "We are disappointed in the language and actions Anthony Edwards displayed on social media," president of basketball operations Tim Connelly said in a statement distributed by the team. "The Timberwolves are committed to being an inclusive and welcoming organization for all and apologize for the offense this has caused to so many."

    In the since-deleted post, Edwards recorded a group of men on a sidewalk from a vehicle he was inside and made a disparaging, profane comment about what he assumed to be their sexual orientation. He posted an apology on Twitter on Sunday.

      "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," Edwards tweeted. "There's no excuse for it, at all. I was raised better than that!"
