The Los Angeles Kings have apologized for a suicide joke made on the team's Twitter handle on Monday night.
Both tweets were deleted by Tuesday morning, according to Yahoo Sports. The Kings later provided a statement of apology to Yahoo:
During our games we make it a priority to answer questions from our fans via our Twitter feed as a means to create conversation and drive engagement with our fan base.
Unfortunately, in the midst of answering questions during the second intermission, one of those replies was insensitive and inappropriate. We recognize this and apologize for our reply. We have removed the comment and have taken action to make sure this does not happen moving forward.
