Danny Green, NBA Player, Apologizes For Holocaust Selfie

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:

Green has been posting images of his trip to Europe for preseason matches and other events as part of the NBA Global Games.
