WWE Apologizes For Racial Slurs Used By A Ball Brother During Event
The WWE has released an apology after Lavar Ball’s youngest son LeMelo used a racial slur during a Monday Night Raw event.
LaMelo, who is the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo, shouted into a microphone, “Beat that nigga’s ass,” during an appearance of his family on Monday Night Raw as his dad was getting into it with a character referred to as the Miz.

“The inappropriate language used by a guest during the ‘Miz TV’ segment was not scripted nor reflects WWE’s values,” the WWE said in a released statement, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The Ball family just can’t stay out of the news. What should have been stories just about their family participating in a WWE event and now turned into apologizing for using racial slurs on live television.
