Cincinnati Bengals defensive back Eli Apple offered an apology on Tuesday for an ill-advised tweet he sent on Monday night that appeared to mock Buffalo Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin.

Bills defensive lineman Shaq Lawson called Apple out for the tweet on Tuesday.

Not long after Lawson’s tweet, Apple sent a tweet where he apologized — kinda — for his tweet that seemingly referenced Hamlin.

“All love thoughts prayers and concerns to [Damar Hamlin] as he continues to recover from that tragic incident,” tweeted Apple. “Never would I make light of that scary unfortunate scene. This game is truly a dangerous risk to our bodies mind and spirit. Nothing but love to all my football brothers.”

Apple has never been shy about making his feelings known on Twitter. But it might be wise for him to start showing some restraint. In fact, laying off social media through the end of the postseason might not be a bad idea for the former Ohio State standout.
