Basketball star LeBron James has apologised after sharing a lyric about "Jewish money" on social media - saying he thought it was a compliment.
James was called out over the lyric - which comes from a song by US rapper 21 Savage - after he shared it with his 45.8m followers on Instagram.
But James said it was not his intent "to hurt anyone" with Saturday's post.
"Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone," he told sports channel ESPN on Sunday. "That's not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That's what I do. I ride in my car, I listen to great music, and that was the byproduct of it.
"So I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously it wasn't through the lens of a lot of people."

Hoist on their own petard.
And this is the genius that presumes to call our president an idiot?
I imagine the apology for the Old White Men comment is coming next......................
Money can’t fix stupid.
Keep digging, “king” James.
As predicted Soi Boi Silver will do nothing other than drop his panties and bend over.
Being anti-Jewish isn’t racist is it? Only if you are a Democrat.
If people were equal, LeBron would still be in the ghetto of equal black boy wannabees
Still running his mouth. The jerk needed to be fired long ago.
Yeah, wheres that, Kingie? Sliver Silver?
Oh wait, its now chic to bash white males, especially old ones.
Garrison Hearst was better. Re: homosexuals.
Sorry James, the cat is out of the bag. Hopefully the fans will react as the NFL fans did for the take a knee debacle.
He (like the NFL players) need to concentrate on one single thing, and just be the best at that. I hate to suggest it but it just seems like all of those NBA players from the 1960s/1970s....were more skilled at life and playing, than these players that exist today. I still believe today that the 1968 Celtics could take on any team in the NBA today and beat them in a seven game series.
Perhaps, if not for the elbows, charging, and flopping on the floor.
Well, I get LeBron’s equality shoe message - I’ll ‘stand up and speak’... against antisemitism...
