This Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. More importantly, the game will take place in London, England. Due to this, each team is jockeying to gain a fan base in the country.
As first reported by SB Nation, the Ravens tweeted out a photo of Queen Elizabeth wearing Ravens facepaint. The Ravens promptly deleted the tweet, but it isn’t too good of a PR look to say the least. Despite being a constituitional monarchy, many people in the United Kingdom still hold the Queen in high regard.
In addition, this particular photo wasn’t photoshopped. It was actually created through a filter on the team’s app. Many people on Twitter made fun of the situation:

Even in a light-hearted tweet such as this one, some will take offense to it. However, it should just go as a lesson to be bit more sensitive about the subject of your tweets. Although this is the case, it is still pretty funny to say the least.
Here I will leave a golden tweet from Bill Barnwell of ESPN, who photoshopped the picture of Queen Elizabeth that the Ravens tweeted onto the body of Ravens legend Ray Lewis:
