Dutch airline retracts jokey Tweet over Mexico exit from World Cup
Dutch plane operator KLM has apologised for sending out a tweet from its official account making a joke of Mexico's defeat to the Netherlands at the World Cup, reports BBC News. Within minutes of Holland's 2-1 stoppage-time win, the firm published a picture of an airport departures sign under the heading Adios Amigos.
Next to the word Departures was a man with a moustache and sombrero.
The post went viral but was deleted shortly afterwards.
"It was meant to be a joke but there was too much negative reaction," said KLM spokeswoman Lisette Ebeling Koning.
