MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant admitted Wednesday that he attended a weekend party dubbed a COVID-19 “superspreader” event by health officials.
The All Black Affair Party was held at In Love Club in Memphis, in a tent outside.
While talking with reporters Wednesday, Morant admitted to be at the party, and said, "I should have had a mask on throughout the party but I'm still learning all the protocols and rules the NBA laid out this year."
Video on social media showed a packed event with very few people social distancing or wearing masks.
Shelby County health officials admitted inspectors went to the club Saturday afternoon before the event began, and again at 8:00 p.m. that night, but didn't stop the party.
Club In Love announced on Facebook Wednesday Evening it will be closed for two weeks following this event.
