Los Angeles Lakers center Roy Hibbert seems like a nice enough guy. But, as we’ve seen in the past, he is not a very good communicator.

Hibbert’s poor communications skills got the better of him again on Wednesday. As the world watched in horror as the San Bernardino shootings unfolded on live television, Hibbert issued a tweet that was intended to express his sympathies for the victims of the tragedy. Unfortunately, instead of just saying, “my heart goes out to the victims,” or “praying for San Bernardino,” or something simple like that, Hibbert actually compared the senseless loss of 14 human lives to losing basketball games.

Take a look:

There really was no need to mention basketball at all in that tweet. That said, it’s the “despite” that really makes it awful, because it implies that Hibbert has somehow found enough strength to overcome his own personal tragedy of losing games left and right to mourn for people suffering their own tragedies.

Needless to say, Twitter did not react kindly to the Lakers’ big man:

Amazingly, at time of writing, Hibbert has not deleted that tweet. However, I opted to use a screen cap instead of embedding it, just in case he comes to his senses at some point in the future.

Roy, I know you meant well. But come on man, delete that sh*t.
