Kyrie Irving is no fan of Thanksgiving.

The Boston Celtics star point guard, who has some Native American lineage, trashed the holiday following his team's loss to the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

"F--k Thanksgiving," he said as he walked away from reporters.

Irving has since issued an apology on Twitter.

"I spoke w/ frustration after last nights game and spoke words that shouldn’t be in a professional setting no matter what," he wrote.

"Meant no disrespect to the Holiday and those who celebrate it respectfully. I’m grateful for the time We all can share with our families. We are always ONE."

The Celtics fell to 9-9 on the season with last night's home loss to the New York Knicks. Irving probably isn't the only member of his team who's really frustrated right now.
