Strippers at the site of Ja Morant’s first viral gun incident say the NBA star is ‘clearly asking for attention’
Some strippers at a Denver, Colorado club are backing Ja Morant’s NBA suspension from the Memphis Grizzlies after he allegedly brandished a gun on Instagram Live where they work in March.
Morant was suspended eight games for the incident, and he is suspended again by the league for a similar incident with a firearm last week.
A Denver club stripper said Morant clearly didn’t learn from his mistakes and didn’t apologize to club employees for the incident in March.

“I don’t anticipate an apology (anytime soon). It’s a boy,” one dancer told the New York Post.

This same stripper even says that Morant’s career should be over.
“He’s clearly demanding attention and trying to be a baller,” she said. “He should be banned from all clubs and have his NBA career stripped given the current circumstances in our country regarding gun violence.”
Another dancer said, “I just wonder how he’s still on the team.”
This is not Morant’s first controversy. It was revealed in March that he got into a fight with a teenager at his home during a basketball game last summer and apparently showed a gun. Morant says he acted in self-defense.
The Indiana Pacers also claimed a confrontation involving Morant and his associates in January impacted the team. During the alleged incident, a red laser was aimed at Pacers players from an SUV that was carrying Morant. The Pacers believed a gun was pointed at them and reported the incident to NBA officials.

Morant admitted his off-field issues were a distraction for the team that played a role in knocking the second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies out of the playoffs in the first round.
“I know I’ve disappointed a lot of people who have supported me. This is a journey, and I recognize there’s still work to be done,” Morant said in a statement obtained by Fox News Digital. “My words may not mean much right now, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I pledge to keep working on myself.”
