Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs is apologizing for taking a selfie at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin and posting it on Instagram with a caption that drew criticism on social media.
Green’s selfie at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe initially included the caption: “You know I had to do it one time lol #Holocaust”
The Guardian reports that Green changed the text to read, “A lot of history here, more than you could imagine…very sad/tragic things happened #holocaust #berlin”
But shortly afterward, he removed the post and apologized on Twitter:
I want to sincerely apologize for the insensitivity of my post! — Danny Green (@DGreen_14) October 8, 2014
I have great respect n understanding for this country’s history n wanted to continue chronicling my experience in Berlin — Danny Green (@DGreen_14) October 8, 2014
But showed poor judgement…sorry once again — Danny Green (@DGreen_14) October 8, 2014
Green has been posting images of his trip to Europe for preseason matches and other events as part of the Holocaust selfie.
