The Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos tried to show their support for Mexico this week, which is reeling from Tuesday’s devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake that killed at least 225 people. Unfortunately, while the teams’ intentions were good, what they actually did was desecrate the Mexican flag.


Here is what the Mexican flag actually looks like:

Note the coat of arms in the middle, with an eagle sitting on a cactus eating a snake:

Without that badass coat of arms, it’s not a Mexican flag. It’s an Italian flag:

Unfortunately, in their attempts to honor the victims of Tuesday’s earthquake, both the Titans and Broncos removed the Mexican coat of arms and replaced it with their own logos.

Take a look:

Like I said, the intentions were good, but this is maybe not such a great way to express solidarity.

Anyway, for the Denver Broncos the story ends here. But for the Tennessee Titans there’s more. You see, when one young fan had the audacity to point out that the Mexican flag is just an Italian flag without the coat of arms, the Titans’ social media team burned him like Daenerys burned Randyll and Dickon Tarly:

Dracarys, muthaf*cka.

But, you know, pray for Mexico and whatnot.
