Jimmy Butler is on his way to Miami after a couple of months playing with the Philadelphia 76ers, where he went to play in the playoffs, getting eliminated of competition thanks to a buzzer-beater by Kawhi Leonard in the Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
As he’s headed to the AmericanAirlines Arena, the Sixers wanted to show their appreciation to the player for his contributions, but things didn’t go as expected for the team. As it is the common thing to do nowadays, Philly chose to tweet their appreciation for Butler. Only thing was that there was one problem with their thanks. They misspelled “Butler.”
The 76ers botched the thank you tweet and instead of thanking Jimmy Butler, the actual player, they thanked “Jimmy Buter.”
The worst part is that Butler’s name is spelled correctly in the message and his jersey is there, right in the picture, with his name correctly spelled, too.
Of course, this is not the first time something like that happens, but that doesn’t mean it has stopped being funny when we see professional sports teams making these mistakes when using social media.
