Miami Heat big man Meyers Leonard is in trouble on Tuesday after video surfaced of him using an anti-Semitic slur in a Twitch stream.

This afternoon, the Twitter account Main Team Sports posted video of Leonard playing Call of Duty on a live stream. In the short clip, he uses the k-word, a derogatory slur for Jewish people.

It is unclear who Leonard is speaking to, but he can be heard calling someone a "f-----g k--- b----."

Leonard made headlines with the Portland Trail Blazers last season when he was one of only two NBA players--along with Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic--to continue to stand for the national anthem rather than kneel in protest of racial injustice.

Injuries have limited the nine-year pro to only three games (two starts) in Miami so far this season.

Given his Twitch comments, we wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't play again any time soon.
