first_imgandrew harrison racial slur frank kaminsky final four kentucky wisconsinKentucky sophomore guard Andrew Harrison took to Twitter early Sunday morning to apologize for an offhand comment he made regarding Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky at his team’s post-game press conference after the Wildcats’ Final Four loss. As his teammate, Karl-Anthony Towns, was being asked a question about Kaminsky, Harrison appeared to mutter the words “f*** that n****” to himself. Unfortunately, his microphone was turned on, and his words were far more audible than he’d likely have hoped. Harrison told his followers that the phrase was “used in jest.” He also claims that he called Kaminsky himself to wish him good luck in Monday’s title game.First i want to apologize for my poor choice of words used in jest towards a player I respect and know.— Andrew Harrison (@DrewRoc5) April 5, 2015When I realized how this could be perceived I immediately called big frank to apologize and let him know I didn’t mean any disrespect— Andrew Harrison (@DrewRoc5) April 5, 2015We had a good conversation and I wished him good luck in the championship game Monday.— Andrew Harrison (@DrewRoc5) April 5, 2015Here’s a Vine of the incident, if you somehow haven’t seen footage yet. Harrison is most likely headed to the NBA, so we’re not sure if there will be any repercussions here. Regardless, it’s good that he addressed the situation immediately and took ownership for the mistake.last_img
