@LAKings Apologize for Canada Tweet

We told you Thursday morning about a tweet from the official Twitter account of the Los Angeles Kings that ruffled the feathers of our neighbors up north in Canada.

As predicted, the Kings issued an apology:

“We encourage our digital team to be creative, interactive and to apply a sense of humour whenever possible. To anyone who found it offensive we sincerely apologize,” said Mike Altieri, the Kings’ vice president, communications and content.

Translation: Since we really mean what we tweeted, we are going with the “to anyone who found it offensive” apology instead of truly saying we’re sorry.
