At a rally preceding Saturday’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors, Toronto general manager Masai Ujiri caused a bit of a stir by ending his pregame pump-up speech with a loud “fuck Brooklyn.”
Ujiri apologized at halftime:
“I apologize. I used wrong choice of words out there. This thing is really not about me. It’s about the players and the playoffs. So, just trying to get the crowd out there rattled. Wrong choice of words. I apologize to kids out there and to the Brooklyn guys. Nothing against them. Trying to get our fans going, that’s it.”
While Ujiri probably made the right move by apologizing, he simply can’t undo the millions and millions of lives ruined by his despicable choice of words. Personally, I’m not sure if I’ll ever recover. My ears are still burning!
