Heat center Meyers Leonard was caught using an ethnic slur on a “Call of Duty” stream.

On Tuesday, video surfaced of the NBA veteran Leonard uttering the K-word, an ethnically offensive derogatory term for Jewish people. The video was taken on Leonard’s Twitch stream.

(Warning: Video contains offensive language.)

Leonard pauses before letting out “you f—ing k— b—” on the stream.

The Heat have not yet responded to the video.

Leonard made headlines last season as one of only two NBA players, along with Jonathan Isaac, to not kneel for the national anthem during NBA bubble play to protest racial injustice.

Leonard had only appeared in three games this season before sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury that requires surgery.
