Royal Tweet: Kings follow up Game 2 win over Canucks with another cheeky ... - Washington Post

After the Kings opened the series with a victory Wednesday night, their official account posted: "To everyone in Canada outside of BC, you're welcome," making light of the notion that the Canucks are disliked outside of their home territory.

The fallout from that playful jab blew up into a minor controversy, with the Kings' vice president of communications and broadcasting issuing an apology.

"We encourage our digital team to be creative, interactive and to apply a sense of humor whenever possible," Mike Altieri said at the time. "To anyone who found it offensive we sincerely apologize."

The first tweet, however, wasn't removed.
