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.
We apologize for the regrettable tweet that went out from our account. Our filtering system failed & we will be more vigilant in the future.— New England Patriots (@Patriots) November 14, 2014
In what is becoming a regular thing these days, yet another celebrity in the midst of controversy has reached out to people on Twitter, and yet again it has backfired.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has been under fire for promoting suspicious weight loss products on his show, initiated an online Q&A on Tuesday for people to submit their medical questions.

Here's a few notable examples, but you can read them all on the hashtag: #OzsInbox.
