Of course an apology tweet wasn’t too far behind…
We apologize for the last retweet/tweet moments ago, we have taken it down as it may be insensitive.

The staff at the Jazz should have never promoted a practice that many find so offensive. Some may say that this was an innocent attempt to pay homage to the Jazz’s dynamic duo and people are too sensitive. Just in case you’re not aware why blackface is so derogatory to African American’s, let me share with you how this form of theatrical make-up was used…
Too sensitive? I think not.
