Whenever there's a disaster in some foreign country, you can expect some celebrity or well-known personality to say something insensitive or stupid. Now with Twitter, it's almost a guarantee.
Rapper 50 Cent was admonished for tweeting that his "hoes" in Japan were safe and comedian Gilbert Gottfried lost his endorsement deal with AFLAC Insurance Company for tweeting jokes about the disaster.
Now comes New York Liberty guard Cappie Pondexter (pictured) who tweeted that the earthquake and the tsunami that followed could have been the wrath of God:
"What if God was tired of the way they treated their own people in there own country! Idk guys he makes no mistakes," she tweeted.
She later added: "u just never knw! They did pearl harbor so u can't expect anything less."
After being called out by her followers, local papers and Websites, Pondexter took to her Twitter on Monday to apologize:
"The least thing I wanted was to hurt or offend anyone so again I truly apologize. If you've lost respect for me that's totally fine but please don't let me or my words lose the respect of u[sic] the WNBA and what it stands for.
"I'm very strong woman evn strong enough 2 admit an apologize when I'm wrong. Twitter is a voice and wth tht I wanna apologize again."
The WNBA didn't comment on the incident, but New York Liberty did say they spoke to Pondexter about what she tweeted saying, "She made a mistake and quickly apologized for that mistake."
Do you forgive Pondexter for her comments or should she be punished by the league or her team for possibly hurting the WNBA's image?
