Arizona Diamondbacks Screwed Up & Sent Out a ‘KKK’ Tweet on Social Media (TWEET)
Just like every other team in the league, the Arizona Diamondbacks sent out a promotional tweet on Tuesday to fans, except the social media team clearly didn’t think this one through.
Along with a link to purchase student passes for an upcoming game, the team sent out an unfortunate photo of three fans holding up a ‘KKK’ sign. Clearly, those K’s were in reference to a pitcher striking out batters, but social media ran with it anyway.
The Diamondbacks clearly didn’t think about this picture long enough

After realizing their grave mistake, it was quickly deleted and replaced with another photo.
