Roy Hibbert posts idiotic tweet about San Bernardino victims

When it comes to the tragedy of the San Bernardino shooting on Wednesday, Roy Hibbert's  heart might have been in the right place, but his fingers surely weren't.

In a prime example of "think before you tweet," the Lakers center shared his thoughts of the tragedy on social media, but it sure came out sounding bad — really bad.

Hibbert tweeted: "Despite losing games left and right my heart hurts more for those affected in the #SanBernardino shooting."

It didn't take long for Twitter users to pounce, with one tweet saying "I'd f---ing hope so Roy, c'mon man" and another adding "Jesus I would hope so. basketball games aren't human lives."

One user responded: "this tweet will be deleted soon. Comparing a mass shooting to losing basketball games.. What a big moron"

Hibbert hasn't deleted the tweet as yet, and I'm sure it was just a case of not expressing himself carefully, but you can bet he'll think first before posting the next time.
