Whoever handles the Patriots' social media is probably not having a very fun Friday at work - assuming they are still employed.

To celebrate their 1 millionth follower on Thursday, the Patriots asked people to retweet an image of a digital jersey to receive a customized version with their Twitter handle on the back.

The account then tweeted out a thank you to an account with an extremely racist username, complete with an accompanying jersey emblazoned with the slur.
They have since deleted the offensive tweet and apologized for the "filtering" error.

Nebraska had a disappointing season, ending with a 5-7 record. Husker fans have a lot of feelings about it too. So when Wide Receiver Brandon Reilly went out to eat and encountered a server who wanted to rant about the Huskers, apparently not realizing who was sitting at the table, he decided to leave her that "tip" instead of a monetary one.

Reilly ended up pulling down the tweet after responding to some heated tweets about it.
