Indiana Pacers forward Paul George apologized Thursday for insensitive remarks made via Twitter in reaction to the NFL announcing the indefinite suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.
“Let me apologize to the women and to the VICTIMS of domestic violence people my intent was not to downplay the situation,” George wrote via Twitter.
A series of tweets that drew harsh reaction on social media followed George’s initial plea to “act on this police violence like we actin on this Ray Rice case! Stay strong homie !”
Then, George wrote:
“I don’t condone hittin women or think it’s coo BUT if SHE ain’t trippin then I ain’t trippin.. Lets keep it movin lol let that man play!”
“I get it tho NFL.. You just don’t hit women!”
“If you in a relationship and a woman hit you first and attacking YOU.. Then you obviously ain’t beatin HER. Homie made A bad choice! #StayUp”
George is recovering from a severe leg injury suffered in a Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas.
