    An ebola "joke" by an NFL mascot. Yeahhhhh.

    The recent ebola outbreak is definitely not funny or good trash-talk fodder. And Twitter users let the Jaguars, who are winless on the year, have it on Sunday.

    Hey @Jaguars. Just maybe this week you can teach your mascot some class. His Ebola sign and holding Terrible Towel today was ignorant.

    Can we talk about how ridiculous and inappropriate the Jaguars' mascot's "Towels Carry Ebola" sign (with a Terrible Towel) was today?

    @Jaguars that ebola joke fell flatter than you in every game you've played for like the last 7 years

    The man behind the Jaguars mascot suit is Curtis Dvorak. According to his Twitter, he's been the Jags' mascot for 17 years.
