San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green posted a selfie on Facebook on Oct. 8 at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, and people are freaking out over the NBA star’s lack of sensitivity.

Danny Green, 27, made one huge mistake during his recent trip to Berlin. On Oct. 8, the San Antonio Spurs player posted a selfie on Facebook with a seriously inappropriate caption. Even though he has since apologized, fans are outraged by Danny’s selfie and are sounding off on Twitter about it.

Danny Green’s Holocaust Selfie Sparks Outrage

“You know I had to do it one time lol #Holocaust,” Danny captioned his selfie at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe on Oct. 8.

Whoa. The Holocaust Memorial isn’t somewhere you should be taking random selfies. After posting the photo, Danny received serious reactions on Twitter and Facebook about his selfie.

Needless to say, people aren’t happy about Danny’s photo. The Guardian reports that he changed the caption to say, “A lot of history here, more than you could imagine…very sad/tragic things happened #holocaust #berlin.” Danny later removed the Facebook post.

After the outrage, Danny took to Twitter to apologize for actions in a series of tweets.

We’re glad Danny has taken the time to apologize for his inappropriate post.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Danny’s “holocaust selfie?” Do you think his apology was enough? Let us know!
