Red Hot Chilli Peppers star Flea posted a really long letter on his official and verified Instagram page and penned a long apology message to Los Angeles Lakers center, Dwight Howard.

As you might remember, Dwight Howard had a really bad season with the Lakers in his first journey but his second season with the current Lakers lineup is going really well. Here is what Flea wrote about Dwight and his return:

“Dear @dwighthoward I humbly apologize for heckling you when you came back to Staples as a Rocket for the first time. I supported you with all I had during your first Laker stint, and was so sad that you left. That exchange was actually a learning moment for me.

Caught up in the moment with the rest of the obnoxious hecklers I yelled, “DWIGHT YOU STINK!” You turned around, looked at me and politely said: “Thank you.”

Here is the rest of the story:

“I always kinda thought heckling was part of the crazy fun of attending a game, part of helping my Lakers to win, but that was a wake-up. I’m so grateful to have you playing with all the heart and positivity you bring to the Lakers right now, it is inspiring, and a phenomenal new chapter in your career to witness.

I’ve been a Laker fan since I was a little boy and now I’m an old ass man and still cheering like a little kid.”
