The Portland Pickles baseball team is in a real pickle after the team mascot posted a photo on social media that may have left a sour taste in fans’ mouths.
On Wednesday, the minor league team decided to let “Dillon,” their dill pickle mascot, take over the team’s Twitter page.
However, it was the next post that really aroused interest, especially since it was cropped in a very, well, suggestive manner.
A few minutes after that post, it appeared that the Pickles’ had soured on the mascot takeover.
“It’s come to our attention that this photo can be misinterpreted as a disturbing image,” the next post read. “Dillon would like to go on record and say that he was trying to give his fans a thumbs up.”
A short time later, the team tried to turn the incident into a cautionary tale and warned followers to “ALWAYS double check before posting.”
However, many Twitter users suspected the posting of the pervy pickle pic was no accident since the team tagged Oscar Meyer, Corn Nuts and Manscaped in the tweet, among others.
