As noted by Clutch Points, Morant deleted a series of stories which raised many eyebrows.

In the deleted stories, the Memphis Grizzlies player said goodbye to his parents and daughter in three separate posts. He then posted a fourth story of him with his back turned, which he captioned ‘bye.’

Morant’s recent controversies

The player was recently suspended for brandishing a gun during an Instagram Live, but it’s not the first time he’s been at the centre of controversy.

As noted by Forbes, Morant was suspended in March 2023 when he also waved a gun around on Instagram Live while at a club.

In September 2022, he stormed into a high school volleyball game with family and friends. Officers tried to block the group from entering the student’s section, but one of Morant’s friends managed to gain access and is alleged to have threatened to beat a teenager.

In July 2022, he punched a 17-year-old during a pickup basketball game at home.

Following his recent post, fans are worried about the player’s safety and have taken to social media to show their support.


“Hope everything is good with you @JaMorant; your mistakes do not define you.”


“All that matters is Ja Morant being okay. I need 12 back in a positive & healthy headspace.”
