San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick apologized Tuesday after posting a photo to his Instagram that made light of deadly floods in Texas.

“I warned you the #7tormsComing !!! #Houston,” the NFL star wrote alongside the photo showing cars submerged in water. Kaepernick apparently deleted the post shortly afterward, then tweeted an apology, saying he was “so sorry about my insensitive post earlier today.”

Kaepernick, an outspoken, often criticized athlete, previously found himself in a social media debacle in February when he launched a searing verbal attack against a fan on Twitter.
