The Los Angeles Lakers deleted a 9/11 tweet after receiving unexpected criticism, then later apologized for the perceived misstep in a statement to USA TODAY Sports.

The attached photo in the tweet featured Lakers star Kobe Bryant during the 2001-02 season, with a commemorative ribbon in clear view on his jersey that included an American flag. The hashtag that was widely used to honor the 9/11 victims on the anniversary, #neverforget, was displayed across the picture.
