Official Dublin GAA Twitter issues apology after getting criticised for 'pathetic' Lee Keegan black card tweet
Dublin GAA's official Twitter page has received an online backlash for its half-time Tweet in relation to Mayo's Lee Keegan.
The Mayo wing-back received a black card after his tussle with Dublin forward, Diarmuid Connolly.
Dublin GAA's official Twitter page reacted at half-time with a animated picture of a blond actress waving goodbye to Keegan.
The reaction on social media has been largely negative, with one fan calling it "literally the most embarrassing thing [I have] ever seen on Twitter in regards to GAA."
Another called it "classless", while another follower said the Tweet was "pathetic."
The Tweet was deleted approximately a half hour after the final whistle was blown.
They later apologised for any offence caused.
Apologies for tweet about Lee Keegan during game. It was an error in judgement & not in the spirit of the respect between these two teams— Dublin GAA (@DubGAAOfficial) October 1, 2016
