Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant has apologized for taking a shot at the police.

According to ESPN, Morant posted a picture on his Instagram story of himself wearing a uniform that had his name replaced with “f**k” and the number 12. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to the same ESPN report, “F**k 12” is an anti-police message.

The picture was shared following the news NBA players will be allowed to promote social justice messages on their uniforms.

Morant released an apology late Sunday night on his Twitter and said in part, “We NEED good cops to step up and make sure other cops are not abusing their power.”

I understand we’re in an emotionally charged time in America following the death of George Floyd and the riots and protests that followed.

However, you’re not going to do yourself any favors by posting messages like the one Morant did to Instagram. It’s never going to end well.

If Morant really feels that way (maybe he does, maybe he doesn’t), then he should discuss it privately among friends.

He shouldn’t post it to his three million Instagram followers.

At the same time, there’s no need to be one of those clowns who calls for someone’s job when they make a mistake on social media.

This is a teachable moment. The Grizzlies should just sit Morant down, explain to him that he represents a pro sports organization and that he should always think before hitting send.

Hopefully, Morant learns to be a shade smarter. He’s a hell of a ball player, and I wouldn’t want to see him make too many mistakes.

Notices Designed by Residents to Appear on State Highways

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Starting in early August, people driving on Mississippi's interstates will see new, quirky slogans appearing on digital message signs.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation tasked residents in May with coming up with creative notices focused on safety to display on state highways. After reviewing more than 500 entries, the Department of Transportation has selected five finalists, the department announced Friday.

“MDOT received so many clever entries throughout this contest, and we are so grateful for everyone’s participation,” Melinda McGrath, the department's executive director, said in a news release.

The winning message comes from Tommye Henderson, of Clinton, Mississippi:

ZOOM IS FOR

ONLINE MEETINGS

NOT HIGHWAY DRIVING

Other notable entries were Jim Miller's from Madison:

THE HOSPITALITY STATE

WILL GREET SPEEDERS

WITH A WELCOME TICKET

Maggie King, of Canton, wrote:

DRIVE BOOZY

AND YOUR TICKET

COULD BE A DOOZY

MDOT’s traffic safety messages, which are often related to current events and pop culture, are part of an effort to encourage drivers to change their actions behind the wheel, officials said. More than 90% of vehicle crashes are caused by driver decisions, such as speeding, driving aggressively, distracted or impaired, the transportation department said.
