Kevin Garnett's apology to Charlie Villanueva generates waves of trash talk

The minute Kevin Garnett issued a statement of apology for allegedly calling Charlie Villanueva "a cancer patient," you knew this was going to happen. Gadzooks and great Odin's raven, my good people, there was just something about the way the apology was worded that was destined for Twitter memeyness.

The text of the apology, in part: "My comment to [Villanueva] was in fact 'You are cancerous to your team and our league.' "

Forsooth, that is what did it. Go to Twitter and check #politicallycorrecttrashtalk or #KGtrashtalk or, if it be pleasing to you, read a sampling herewith:

jbisdaman: The excrement you have brought to this sporting match is detectable in the arena's budget section.

kimaniWDavid: I believe your overweight female progenitor is offering inappropriate services to generate income.

lilcurtzurt: You and your team are going to lose this contest, my good sir.

pinder: I mock your value system. You also appear foolish to the eyes of others

supersloth: your clothes are not nearly as nice as they could be and your haircut is very unkempt

sigD: Your defense is not very good at all, and I wish you would improve your personal hygiene.

wzzntzz: "Hail, fellow! Well met! You are a member of the Washington Wizards."

jwarminsky: If white men were scientifically known to be inferior jumpers, your skillset would be in that category.

DaleBanks: My larger frame almost makes it a certainty that I could overcome you physically.

sambot5k: perhaps if you return home now, you will find your mother bearing tissues for your tears

sethlipkin: Oh baby, you're NOT going to win, uh-uh, unless your total score, in the end, exceeds mine.

Eutychus12: That is my fault. I was under the impression you were going to put forth a defensive effort

The_Real_LLC: Judging by your performance, you appear to be a gentleman who enjoys wine coolers.

marcel_mutoni: I read on an Internet weblog that you are statistically inferior to me.

MrCarlisle86: Master Kobe of the good Bryant clan, it greatly vexes me how u play w/ such ailments. If this be leprosy I rebuke thee at once.

BCSisBS: Fool! When I spoke of thee as a cancer I referred to the zodiac sign, as you display traits of those born from June 22-July 22.
