Victor Cruz apologizes for George Zimmerman tweet

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Cruz deleted controversial tweet and admits 'mistake.'

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has apologized for tweeting that George Zimmerman,. acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin "doesn't last a year before the hood catches up to him.'

Here is the series of tweets Cruz issued while apologizing.

I think Cruz' initial tweet was an emotional reaction, and the latest example of how athletes can unwittingly get themselves in trouble via social media. His apology sounds more like the Cruz we have come to know.
