The 29-year-old was playing ‘Call of Duty’ on the website, Twitch, when he was caught saying ‘k***’ – a derogatory term for a Jewish person.

‘F***ing cowards,’ a player, purportedly Leonard, is heard saying during the live stream. ‘Don’t f***ing snipe me, you f***ing k*** b****.’

The Heat did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

Leonard raised some eyebrows during the NBA’s 2019-20 season restart outside Orlando last summer when he decided to stand for the national anthem while his Miami teammates knelt to protest racism. 

He explained his decision in August, saying that he could be a patriot while supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. 

‘I think I can be a beacon of light … not only for my voice or platform and action, but in everything I’m doing,’ Leonard told The Undefeated. ‘I certainly support Black Lives Matter. … I am very aware of what is going on. But I can be both. My patriotism runs deep.’
