Mercedes-Benz’ official Twitter account was forced to delete a controversial tweet about Sunday night’s New England Patriots-Los Angeles Rams’ Super Bowl game.
The Patriots-Rams’ Super Bowl contest was a pretty boring one, with neither team getting into the end zone until midway through the fourth quarter.
There were basically no big offensive plays and very little excitement throughout the contest. New England ended up topping Los Angeles, 13-3, to win its sixth Super Bowl championship in franchise history.
The game was being played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
Mercedes-Benz’ Twitter account, Mercedes-Benz USA, tried to get in on the fun of criticizing the game on social media.
“If this game weren’t in my stadium, I would have driven away by now,” the account tweeted.
Unsurprisingly, the tweet has since been deleted.
“Mercedes is paying $324 million for 27 years of naming rights on the stadium in Atlanta. After their social media account bashed the Super Bowl game, the tweet was eventually deleted,” Darren Rovell tweeted.

The tweet wasn’t that bad – it was pretty clever, actually – but it’s not surprising that it ended up getting deleted.
