San Antonio Spurs teammates Tony Parker and Boris Diaw are in hot water. The players, who are both French, were pictured doing a salute known as the “quenelle” — which is regarded as an anti-Semitic gesture. In fact, it’s the Nazi salute inverted.

Parker has already issued an apology. In the press release, he said the photo was taken years ago and he didn’t know the meaning behind the gesture. The other man in both of the pictures is a comedian who is known for ruffling feathers in France. The country is now considering banning him from performing in any public venues going forward.
