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.

WARNING: Adult, work-unsafe language in this video. Fun fact: This is the same rage you see when your left-leaning friends talk about the name "Washington Redskins." Fitting, as that's who the Cowboys lost to.
