It was one of the most horrifying sports injuries in recent memory, and it took place on one of the grandest stages:

Kevin Ware of Louisville came crashing down to the floor last night while trying to block a shot, fracturing his leg in multiple places directly in front of teammates.

And while Ware has the support of coach Rick Pitino, his friends, his family and the entire city of Louisville, perhaps he'll also be comforted to know that many famous people are keeping him in their thoughts today.

Here is a rundown of celebrity Twitter reaction:

Maybe Chris Brown is serious about turning over a new leaf.

The R&B star took a flagrant foul from Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden Sunday as cameras showed him on the Jumbotron and the capacity crowd booed.

Brown, however, got a kick out of it and laughed it off.

Sitting courtside with Spike Lee as the Knicks beat the Boston Celtics, Brown, 23, was showered with jeers when his and Lee’s faces appeared on screen.

Chris doesn't seem to be forgiven yet by NYC fans for his previous actions, despite the fact that Rihanna forgave him and took him back last year.

Speaking of which, it's still unclear whether the rumored Chris Brown and Rihanna break-up is real or not. We're going with no ... given that it's April 1.

Kevin Ware of Louisville is resting comfortably in the hospital this morning, hours after breaking his leg in arguably the most gruesome sports injury anyone has ever seen.

The incident took place in the first half of Louisville's Final Four victory of Duke, as the guard jumped to block a three-point attempt and landed awkward on his right leg.

As you can see in the following video, the body part immediately snapped in half in front of the Cardinals' bench, as teammates reacted in horror. Be warned: this is graphic in nature.

In an interview with CNN yesterday, former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Kwame Harris came out as a homosexual.

Harris had been arrested in January for beating an ex-boyfriend and said he underwent significant stress and pressure, keeping his sexuality a secret during his playing days.

“You want to escape the despair and turmoil and your mind goes to dark places,” Harris said of keeping his sexuality secret. “I’m happy today, and I’m glad they were just ideas and I didn’t act on any of them.

“The cost was great not speak candidly open about myself in complete manner,” Harris said. “If I could have done it differently, I would have hoped I found the strength [to come out].”

The Houston Astros will open the season this Sunday, making their first appearance as an American League team after switching from the National League during the offseason.

While the switch allows them an extra hitter in the form of a DH, nobody expects that to matter. Why? Because the Astros have the lowest salary in baseball.

Their salary is so low, in fact, that injured third baseman Alex Rodriguez is making more than the entire team in Houston! And he may not even see the field this year! Yikes!

Under fire from the Twitterverse and other TV analysts, Doug Gottlieb has issued an apology for his "white man" joke last night.

The former Oklahama State point guard was discussing the NCAA Tournament with four African-American colleagues when he quipped that he's just around to bring the "white man's perspective to the set."

The line didn't exactly go over well, as you can see in the following video:

At first defending the line as a "joke," Gottlieb was forced to be a bit contrite after criticism poured in, most pointedly from ESPN college football reporter Mark May, who Tweeted that Gottlieb should be "canned" and added:

Well, this was awkward.

During a segment of CBS' college basketball pregame show tonight, Doug Gottlieb was asked for his opinion on something related to the NCAA Tournament and - surrounded by Greg Gumbel, Greg Anthony, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley - cracked:

"I'm just here to bring diversity to the set here. Give the kind of white man's perspective on things from the point guard position."

Did the quip go over well? Not exactly...

When asked via Twitter about the random comment, Gottlieb defended it as a "joke."

But do you think he was really kidding? Or actually felt out of place in some way?
