Lamar Jackson apologized Friday for his vulgar reply to a frustrated fan's tweet after the Baltimore Ravens' 28-27 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday.

Jackson addressed reporters and mentioned, “I apologize if I hurt feelings out there.” The star quarterback added, “I had just busted my behind — my whole team, the coaches did — that’s what I seen. I just reacted to it. My bad. My bad…"

After Sunday's game, a disgruntled fan on Twitter tagged both Jackson and place kicker Justin Tucker that read: “When someone is asking for over 250 mil guaranteed like @Lj_era8 … games like this should not come to @jtuck9. Let Lamar walk and spend that money on a well-rounded team.”

Jackson replied angrily in a now-deleted tweet, “Boy STFU y’all be cappin too much on this app mf never smelt a football field never did s–t but eat d–k.”

According to a New York Post report, Jackson has regrets saying those words over social media stating, “We got kids watching. I don’t need kids saying that. I’ll try to stay off Twitter, if anything, if something like that happens again. Hopefully, we’re not losing no more.”

The apology from the NFL's 2019 Most Valuable Player comes five days after the Twitter incident, citing he felt “bitter” from the upset loss and it was the first tweet he saw on social media.

Despite Sunday's loss to the Jags, the two-time Pro Bowler has led the Ravens (7-4) to a first place tie in the AFC North. Baltimore will host the Denver Broncos at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday.
