Time for our PR screw up of the day, and this episode comes courtesy of the Brooklyn Nets.
Toronto and the Raptors fans have been excellent in the playoff series against Brooklyn. The WeTheNorth hashtag has gotten everywhere (including the Brooklyn Bridge) and the atmosphere at the Air Canada Center has been nothing short of electric, with thousands of fans congregating outside to watch the game on big-screens as well.
And it seems like one of the Brooklyn Nets writers - tweeting off the Nets official account - noted how loud the Raptors fans are in support for their team and let Nets fans know just what they should be doing.
From the Brooklyn Nets official twitter account:
"#Nets fans take note- this is what a playoff crowd sounds like..set your DVD and take notes #RAPTORSvNETS - LR"
LR is team beat reporter Lenn Robbins who had been handed the reigns to the teams twitter for the 2nd and 3rd quarters of last nights game.
And as you can imagine, Brooklyn fans weren't too happy at a tweet from their own team, which was basically criticising them.
"How can this be tweeted?" was one Nets supporters reaction, while another added: "very unprofessional! Way to motivate your fans. Great timing! Right in the middle of game 5! #areyouserious"
The Nets account tweeted out an apology earlier today saying how "Robbins' tweet last night didn't represent our organization's feelings."
WHo knows, maybe this will actually spur Nets fans on to making some noise in Game 6.
