Nuggets’ Jamal Murray Apologizes After X-Rated Video Surfaces On Instagram Story After Account Is Hacked
While the NBA has been postponed temporarily due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Nuggets point guard Jamal Murray made headlines Sunday after a racy video was posted on his Instagram story. Murray claims his account was hacked and proceeded to apologize to his 450,000 followers for an explicit video that allegedly showed Murray receiving oral sex from an unidentified woman.
First and foremost I would like to apologize to my fans. My account has been hacked, currently working on the issue. Thanks 🙏🏽

His girlfriend Harper Hempel was clearly concerned about the video on Sunday when she tweeted, “If you have the video please delete it,” according to the New York Post. Hempel played volleyball at the University of Kentucky while Murray was a member of the basketball team in 2016. Hempel’s account has now been suspended.
Luckily the backlash won’t be as bad because the season is suspended indefinitely and Murray won’t be talking to reporters any time soon. However, if he was hacked it’s just a matter of time before an eventual lawsuit is filed or more information is revealed.
