LA Times removes Pierce stabbing post

Guest columnist Ted Green wrote on Sunday, in a blog post for The Los Angeles Times, a list of reasons to hate the Celtics. In the post, he suggested that Paul Pierce’s “idea of a fun night is going clubbing and getting stabbed. Good times!”
In 2000, Pierce was stabbed 11 times in his neck, back and face. He was rushed to New England Medical Center, where lung surgery was needed. William Ragland was convicted of assault and battery in the stabbing and sentenced to 7-10 years in prison, while Trevor Watson was given a one-year sentence.
The blog post was removed  by the LA Times around noon EST, although it remained  on the website of Green’s current employer, television station KTLA. WEEI.com attempted to contact both Green (who is apparently a freelance writer) and LA Times sports editor Mike James but did not receive a response.
