Lakers and NBA Engage in “Tweet and Delete” Storm of Apologies

The Lakers and the NBA had their own ice storm brewing on the internet. In a tweet posted yesterday, Lakers owner Jeanie Buss tweeted “The Lakers are the greatest team of all time and all other teams are irrelevant.” This tweet was met with swift backlash from around the league, with many accusing Buss of hate speech and inciting division within the NBA.

The Lakers organization acted quickly, deleting the tweet and issuing a statement that said, “We sincerely apologize for the tweet posted yesterday. We do not condone any type of hate speech, and we understand that our words need to be carefully chosen to ensure respect for all of our fellow competitors.”

Buss later clarified her tweet, saying that she was trying to emphasize her team’s greatness and was not trying to marginalize any other team. However, many have speculated that the Lakers were actually premeditating this whole event. It was almost as if they knew the tweet would cause a stir, and they had already planned to delete it and issue a statement of apology.

Regardless of their intent, the Lakers have taught us all an important lesson in today’s world, where people’s words can easily be misconstrued and taken out of context. We should all be more aware of what we post online and think twice before sending that tweet.
