Yikes! From a fight on the court to a fight on social media, Marcus Morris took quite a hit last night.

It all started during the Grizzlies vs Knicks game when things got heated and physical between Elfrid Payton and Jae Crowder causing somewhat of a brawl to ensue. This resulted in Payton, Crowder, and Morris all being dismissed from the ending of the game. 

But that wasn’t the end of fights once Morris made some unsavory and sexist comments about Crowder in a post-game interview, stating that Crowder had “female tendencies” in “a man’s game”. Morris went on further to call Crowder “soft” and “very woman-like”.

These comments didn’t go over well with many women and men on social media, as they took to Twitter to voice their own opinions about Morris’s offensive comments with some even going as far as to call for his suspension. 

Well, of course, Morris took to Twitter as well to issue an apology for his comments, professing his respect for women.

Maybe Morris will think twice before making a statement in another post-game interview.
