Dwight Howard Tweets And Deletes Message Of Support To Palestine

Via Complex reports:

For whatever reason, Dwight Howard decided to get opinionated about international politics with a tweet. He then retracted his tweet to avoid backlash…only to receive further backlash for doing so. Howard never quite gets his way.

On Saturday afternoon, Howard decided to tweet #FreePalestine for support in the ongoing Israeli-Palestine conflict. This was a bold move given the intensity and complexity of the conflict. In fact, it was too bold; he deleted the tweet minutes after and said his apologies.



Dwight later deleted and apologized for the tweets:



How is it a mistake to have an opinion? One reason Howard deleted the tweet was because of his teammate, Omri Casspi, is the first Israeli to play in an NBA game.


Do you think Dwight should have deleted his tweet?
