Royal Dutch Airlines KLM takes parting shot at Mexico after Netherlands' stunning World Cup comeback
Stay classy, KLM.
KLM, the Royal Dutch Airlines, took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to take a parting shot at Mexico after the Netherlands made a stunning comeback against El Tri in a World Cup Round of 16 game in Brazil.
"Adios Amigos! #NEDMEX" read the tweet posted on KLM's official account that included a picture of a departures sign featuring a sombrero-wearing caricature.
The tweet immediately went viral and led to a number of angry replies.
"Leave it to @KLM to be racist & mean about a World Cup game. I am no longer a customer," said one outraged fan.
"@KLM are bastards for rubbing their nose in it," said another.
"Dutch arrogance at it's finest. KLM just lost 100% of it's Mexican customers."
The tweet that so many found offensive appears to have been removed from KLM's feed, but not before being retweeted nearly 10,000 times.
.@KLM I'm never flying your shitty airline again. Fuck you big time.— Gael Garcia Bernal (@GaelGarciaB) June 29, 2014
