Dwight Howard sends out odd Tweet about Palestine

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard sent out an odd Tweet on Saturday. It simply read “#FreePalestine” and was deleted, but internet savvy Twitter users who expected that screen shotted it before it was taken down.

After taking down the Tweet, Howard tweeted out an apology and said that he has never, and will never, comment on international politics.

Looks like there could’ve been some reasoning behind it, and maybe it wasn’t a mistake.

It looks like Howard’s heart was in the right place and you can’t blame him for wanting to avoid being caught up in a firestorm over the tweet and his decision to delete it.
