 Tony Parker took a picture recently that has landed him in some hot water with a Jewish Human Rights group. Parker was photographed doing the "Quenelle," which is somewhat of a Nazi salute.

Parker was pictured with French comedian Dieudonne, an accused anti-Semite who coined the gesture. Previously, Parker's teammate Boris Diaw was caught doing the same pose. 

Parker has been asked by the Simon Wiesenthal Center to apologize for his actions; 

“As a leading sports figure on both sides of the Atlantic, Parker has a special moral obligation to disassociate himself from a gesture that the government of France has identified as anti-Semitic,” Cooper said.
