Williams has suffered a bit in recent months

The first was when Williams said via his verified Twitter account that Boston Celtics’ new head coach Imeu Doka was the team’s first head coach of color.
Udoka is actually the sixth head coach of color, and Williams has been criticized for not doing research.
He responded to the incident on Twitter.
Because it’s related to a Boston Celtics tweet from my account a few hours ago…I didn’t post that and my password has now been changed.
