Rio de Janeiro: What was meant to be a joke has turned into a PR blunder for Dutch airline KLM after it angered Mexican soccer fans by taking to Twitter to celebrate the Netherlands' dramatic comeback victory in the World Cup on Sunday.

KLM let loose on its Twitter feed a picture of an airport departures sign under the heading “Adios Amigos!”

The post immediately went viral, with A-list Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal saying he’ll never fly the carrier again. The post was pulled a half-hour later without an explanation. Later, KLM issued a formal apology.
