So much for being a gracious winner. After the Netherlands scored a controversy-riddled 2-1 win Sunday to eliminate Mexico from the World Cup, Royal Dutch Airlines, perhaps better known as KLM, figured it would be a good time to gloat. The result was this tweet:


As you might have guessed, reaction was not favorable, which included Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal using some NSFW language in his response. The backlash prompted KLM to delete the tweet.



"In the best of sportsmanship, we offer our heartfelt apologies to those who have been offended by the comment," Marnix Fruitema, director general of KLM in North America, told the Associated Press.

AeroMexico countered with a tweet that translates to: "Thank you for this great championship. You've made us proud and we're waiting for you at home."
