RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — What was meant to be a joke has turned into a PR blunder for Dutch airline KLM after it angered Mexican soccer fans by taking to Twitter to celebrate the Netherlands' dramatic comeback victory in the World Cup.

Within minutes of the Netherlands' 2-1 victory over the Tri, KLM let loose on its Twitter feed a picture of an airport departures sign under the heading "Adios Amigos!" Next to the word "Departures" is the image of a man with a mustache wearing a sombrero.

The tweet may or may not have been in bad taste but the Mexicans deserved to lose that game.  Only their goalie kept it from being 10-1 instead of 2-1.  The entire game was played in front of Mexico's goal.

I think it's 90% being a sore loser, 10% professional agitators looking for a fight.
