Was it improper fro Marc Pingris to take a selfie after the incident? Was it even worse to post it online? People are divided in their opinions though the ones against it have posted strong words against what Pingris did.

Australian NBA player Andrew Bogut sarcastically called it ‘class’, while Filipino netizens said it was embarrassing and disrespectful.

Marc Pingris has since deleted his post and apologized.

“Kung mali ako sorry sa lahat ng nagalit, pero sa tingin ko walang masama sa ginawa ko,” Marc Pingris said when interviewed by “Actually pauwi na ako and gusto ko lang may picture ako sa kanila.”

Some netizens agree.
