Posted on

After Netherlands beat Mexico in the last minute, advancing to quarter finals, the Royal Dutch Airlines Twitter account tweeted the following image:

They even thought it appropriate to add a guy with a mustache and a sombrero.

As expected, this "joke" was not taken lightly by Mexico fans.

How many players did you see wearing sombrero and bigotes? Fuck you, @KLM.

But Americans who care about the Redskins name won't care about @KLM's tweet because, you know, Mexico.

Hi, @KLM CM. Very funny. https://t.co/KTBv3VKgfp You know what? In Mexico are quite amused by your sense of humour.

Solid trolling by KLM. What would have AeroMexico done? Have a stick figure of a very tall person on their sign?

Update: The original tweet has been deleted.

...So bad that @KLM just deleted the tweet. Now, how about an apology to Mexico and @MiSeleccionMx__, who almost defeated #NED?
