Jeremy Lin and Kenyon Martin talked and settled their differences.
Lin responded gracefully, saying his new 'do is a sign of appreciation and respect for African-American culture, the same way Martin's Chinese text character tattoos should be for Asian culture.
Martin clarified his comments afterward, saying he was joking and that Lin can "rock any hairstyle he wants." The former NBA All-Star went a step further by expressing his remorse to Lin in person.
"I think things were blown out of proportion, taken a little out of context as well. But me and him had a discussion where he was extremely courteous."
The 29-year-old combo guard also expressed sympathy for Martin, who received many messages on social media from people accusing him of being racist, while others slung racial slurs at him and his family.
"I'm actually impressed with how he handled everything. I'm thankful for the conversation we had and I'm also sorry for some of the things he and his son kind of had to deal with in the aftermath."
"I'm just processing everything that's happening and kind of felt he was dehumanized to some degree. I wish it didn't happen like that, but we're beyond that and hopefully I don't have to speak about this incident or my hair anymore."
Hopefully this is the end of this hairy situation.
