JJ Redick apologises for use of racial slur, says he was 'tongue-tied'

J.J. Redick under fire for appearing to call Chinese fans ‘C—ks

The 76ers guard took to Twitter to defend himself against the backlash, explaining that he stumbled over his words and that he did not intentionally utter the derogatory term... In the video (at around the 0:18 mark), Redick purportedly uses a racial slur.

The video caused an uproar Sunday morning, which caused the video to be re-edited so Redick wasn't in the montage.

Philadelphia 76ers guard JJ Redick has found himself in a bit of hot water as a video of National Basketball Association players wishing Chinese fans a happy New Years was released, and in the video, the Sixers sniper appears to use a racist term.

As soon as the video was released, social media lit up with outrage over Redick's words and a new cut of the montage was released with the Redick scene taken out. Another version of the video does not include Redick, but the version posted Sunday on YouTube includes Redick's remarks. The comment by Redick was included in a Tencent video called "30 NBA Players Wish Chinese Fans a Happy New Year".

The video was posted to Reddit and immediately gained traction. It's unclear if Redick was saying he used the word accidentally or if what he said was misconstrued as a racist slur.

"I truly believe he didn't say a racial slur and that he has a great deal of respect towards Chinese people".
