Yesterday we reported that the Pacers superstar made some disparaging remarks about the Ray Rice domestic violence mess. George has since apologized for his comments, but it did not stop NBA Legend Larry Bird from speaking out against George’s remarks.

Via CBS Sports:

“Paul George’s tweets from earlier were thoughtless and without regard to the subject of domestic violence and its seriousness in society. We have talked to Paul to strongly express our displeasure and made it clear that the NBA and the Pacers’ organization will not condone or tolerate remarks of this nature. Paul understands that he was wrong and why his tweets were so inappropriate and is very apologetic.”

George, who already apologized on Twitter, issued an official statement as well:

“I want to apologize to all victims of domestic abuse for my insensitive tweets. They were obviously without proper understanding of the seriousness of the situation and I sincerely regret my poor choice of words.”‎
