KLM upsets Mexican soccer fans

Dutch airline KLM had to retract a twitter campaign celebrating their team victory after it angered Mexican soccer fans. Following Mexicos defeat by Holland, KLM took to Twitter posting a picture of an airport departures sign under the heading “Adios Amigos!” Next to the word “Departures” is a man with a mustache wearing a sombrero.

The post went viral and even got the attention of A List Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal. Chances are he’s flown KLM on the Mexico City and Amsterdam route. He shared with his 2 million followers resulting in an apology from KLM.

Who’d have known that Mexico has an A List actor 🙂 The wonders of social media I say.
