Social Media Fail of the Day: New England Patriots Thank Racist Twitter User
- -

Whoever handles the Patriots' social media is probably not having a very fun Friday at work - assuming they are still employed.

To celebrate their 1 millionth follower on Thursday, the Patriots asked people to retweet an image of a digital jersey to receive a customized version with their Twitter handle on the back.


The account then tweeted out a thank you to an account with an extremely racist username, complete with an accompanying jersey emblazoned with the slur.

They have since deleted the offensive tweet and apologized for the "filtering" error.

Hypocrite of the Day: Staind Singer Butchers National Anthem at World Series

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis struck out with baseball fans (and America!) Sunday night, with his unique rendition of the National Anthem at Game 5 of the World Series, and Twitter was not very pleased.

While replacing "at the twilight's last gleaming" with " were so gallantly streaming," might seem like a simple enough mistake to make in front of a large crowd - it was actually Lewis himself who lambasted Christina Aguilera back in 2011 for her screw up.

"I guess I just don't understand how people who sing The National Anthem can be so f—ing self-absorbed that they would try to change that f—ing song. If there is a single song in the history of this country that deserves no creative interpretation, it's that one."

"Self-absorbed," Lewis later apologized to America on his website:
All I can say is I'm sorry and ask for the Nation's forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.
