A popular NBA announcer and radio host has been suspended by his employer for tweeting the phrase “All Lives Matter.”
Grant Napear, dubbed the “TV voice of the Sacramento Kings” by local media, was placed on administrative leave by 1140 KHTK pending an investigation by the station into a ‘controversial’ Twitter exchange.
Amid national protests and riots promoted by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, NBA player DeMarcus Cousins tweeted at Napear, “What’s your take on BLM?”
Napear, 60, responded, “Hey!!!! How are you? Thought you forgot about me. Haven’t heard from you in years. ALL LIVES MATTER…EVERY SINGLE ONE!!!”
