Oh, geez: Mets accidentally refer to Dice-K as 'Dice-KKK' on Twitter
The Mets social media people had a bit of a brainfart on Monday, referring to Daisuke Matsuzaka as "Dice-KKK."
Well, this is unfortunate. During his spring training start on Monday, Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka struck out the side in the first inning. That's not the unfortunate part. Here's how the Mets' social media folks celebrated the strong inning by the man they call Dice-K:
Oops. As you can imagine, the tweet was quickly deleted and an apology was issued:
That was unintended. We're glad he struck out the side. #DiceK— New York Mets (@Mets) March 24, 2014
Thinking before you tweet is essential, folks ... and this comes from someone who has said and continues to say many stupid things on the Internet.
