The Cubs released a statement Monday apologizing for "irresponsible music selection" played in the ninth inning of Sunday night's game against the Cardinals.

The Wrigley Field PA system played "Smack My Bitch Up" by The Prodigy as Aroldis Chapman walked off the mound following a scoreless ninth inning. Chapman, whose trade to the Cubs last month was scrutinized by some, was suspended 30 games for violating MLB's domestic violence policy earlier this year while playing for the Yankees.

The Cubs have fired the employee in charge of the music selection and released this statement.

"We apologize for the irresponsible music selection during our game last night.  The selection of this track showed a lack of judgment and sensitivity to an important issue.  We have terminated our relationship with the employee responsible for making the selection and will be implementing stronger controls to review and approve music before public broadcast during our games."
