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.
