The Dallas Stars released a statement on Sunday saying the club did not condone comments made on Tyler Seguin's Twitter account over the weekend.

A message from his Twitter account, @tylerseguin92, appeared on Saturday night that read, "Only steers and queers in Texas, and I'm not a cow."

The message, which is adapts a line from the film "Full Metal Jacket," was deleted shortly after it was published.

Later in the evening, an apology appeared from @tylerseguin92, reading, "Twitter hacking has to stop. My apologies."

The tweets appeared just days after Seguin was acquired by the Stars in a trade from the Boston Bruins.

"In no way, shape or form does the Dallas Stars organization condone or agree with the message that was sent out through Tyler Seguin's Twitter feed last night." read the team's statement.

"We've addressed the issue directly with Tyler and we'll continue to work on educating our players regarding the importance of their conduct on all forms of social media."

Seguin also apologized earlier this year for another controversial tweet that was sent from same Twitter account back in April.

On Sunday, he added he would be taking some time off the social media site.

"After repeated attempts by "hackers" to try to damage my reputation I have decided to shut down my twitter account for a while," he tweeted.

The Brampton, Ontario native was traded from the Boston Bruins along with Rich Peverley and Ryan Button to the Stars in exchange for Loui Eriksson, Joe Morrow, Reilly Smith, and Matt Fraser.
