Totti was sent off for his ugly challenge in Roma's Coppa Italia final defeat.
But Pazzini said: “I understand that you can have a blackout moment. Now they are talking about morals, but these things can happen.
“I have never had any kind of problem with Balotelli, but I know that he is not loved by many people.
“In my opinion he has brought a little of this on himself.
“Anyway he is very young and has recognised his mistakes. Every now and again his attitude is a little mistaken.”
