A tweet from the corporate account of Buffalo Wild Wings has outraged the Who Dat Nation and left some franchises around Louisiana scrambling to mend fences and keep customers.
The tweet was inspired by a conspicuous bad call (the reversal of an 80-yard run after a fumble) in favor of the Rams during Sunday’s game.
That game-changing errant call echoed another obvious bad call in the Rams’ favor during last year’s NFC Championship game, when a referee’s failure to flag an obvious pass interference prevented the Saints from going to Super Bowl 53. Saints fans sued the NFL for the bad call in the NFC Championship game, but the Louisiana Supreme Court eventually threw the suit out.
To make matters worse, Buffalo Wild Wings mocked Saints QB Drew Brees in a subsequent post by pairing a photo of the defeated quarterback with an emoji similar to his facial expression.
