Mark Cuban Fined for Tweet

Posted: Updated:

Mark Cuban fired off what you might call one of the most-expensive tweets ever.

Saturday, the outspoken billionaire owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks posted a message on Twitter saying he has "failed miserably" in his attempts to "fix officiating" in the pro basketball league. 

The NBA fined Cuban $50,000 for the tweet, as part of its policy against publicly criticizing referees. 

This isn't the first time for Cuban, he's paid millions of dollars in fines over the past 13 years for crying foul on NBA refs. 

According to the Mavs' website, Cuban matches every NBA fine with a personal donation to charity.
