When Purell Hand Sanitizer goes in on your team for no apparent reason, it may be time to just raise the white flag. Sorry, Cleveland. That is exactly happened to the poor Browns when someone in the social media department tossed out a very hilarious Tweet during the Super Bowl.
Not surprisingly Purell released an apology for their Tweet just a few hours later which read:
On behalf of PURELL, we want to apologize to the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Browns fans for an insensitive tweet that was sent from the PURELL Twitter account last night. Many Cleveland Browns fans are upset and understandably so because as Northeast Ohioans we have deep pride for our local community and local sport teams. When we learned of the post, we immediately took it down. This post does not represent the views of PURELL. Someone made a stupid mistake and we are embarrassed and apologetic. The original apologies came from the person who posted the offending tweet, so we took them down and posted our apology from PURELL. We are taking immediate steps to ensure this never happens again. Again, our sincere apology to the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Browns fans.
