Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray was trending on Sunday after a NSFW video appeared on his Instagram Story.

Early in the morning, Murray's IG Stories were flooded with odd posts, including one that looked like a sex tape featuring Murray and his girlfriend, Harper Hempel. Shortly after, that clip as well as the rest of the posts were deleted.

The 23-year-old hooper addressed the issue with a tweet saying he was hacked.

"First and foremost I would like to apologize to my fans," Murray wrote. "My account has been hacked, currently working on the issue. Thanks 🙏."

After reversing the hack, Murray decided it was best to completely abandon Instagram by deactivating his profile.

Hempel, a former Division I college athlete who played volleyball at the University of Kentucky, also deactivated her Instagram and asked those who may have grabbed the NSFW video to please get rid of it.

Before the 2020 NBA season was suspended due to the coronavirus, Murray was averaging career highs in points, steals and FG%. He also put the Milwaukee Bucks' D.J. Wilson on a poster recently with a monster dunk.

Ballislife reposted the highlight and decided to put their own topical spin on the caption. 😅

With the absence of the NBA, March Madness and other sports right now, people have a lot of time on their hands. For proof, look no further than the overwhelming Twitter reaction that followed the news. 🤦‍♂️
