"Obviously I apologize and kind of want to move on. Obviously it was meant as a joke but obviously it was in the wrong place and I didn't mean it that way. I will just try to move on," Beckham told reporters before the White Sox played the Twins on Saturday.
"It's one of those things that was unfortunate that happened and I want to try to move on from it."
