The NBA has fined Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards $40,000 for making anti-LGBTQ remarks in a video on his Instagram account.

In it, Edwards, who was in a vehicle and being recorded, rolls down a car window and calls a group of shirtless men “queer."

The video, apparently from the weekend of Sept. 10, was posted to his Instagram account but soon deleted. On Sept. 11, he posted a message of apology and regret on his Twitter account.

"What I said was immature, hurtful, and disrespectful, and I’m incredibly sorry," said Edwards, 21. "It’s unacceptable for me or anyone to use that language in such a hurtful way, there’s no excuse for it, at all. I was raised better than that!"

The NBA on Tuesday called Edwards' language "offensive and derogatory."
