Paul George seems to be one of the more popular and likable personalities in the NBA these days, so when he took to Twitter on Thursday morning to come to the defense of Ray Rice, I was a bit surprised.
Amidst the Rice domestic violence scandal, this is what George had to say about the situation:
Alrighty then. So George thinks that Janay rice was the one attacking Ray? That makes me question if he’s actually even seen the video yet. Not sure that’ll go over well with George’s agent or anyone with common sense.
Update: George has deleted the tweets and apologized.
Let me apologize to the women and to the VICTIMS of domestic violence people my intent was not to downplay the situation..
