Edwards is under fire for posting a controversial and blatant homophobic story on his Instagram yesterday, voicing profanity while showing a group of men on the street.

This would be nothing new to see online if it wasn't posted by an NBA star himself, whose name is already a big brand. Aside from it being a pretty inconsiderable comment, Edward's marketability and sponsorships could be easily cut immediately. Ant quickly reacted and displayed regret for his story and issued an apology.

Obviously, this won't hurt Ant's career, as he is set to be the face of the Wolves and the NBA in the future. But he has to be a lot more careful with his opinions and actions if he wants to keep fans, sponsors, and everything else that comes with stardom on his side.
