Tampa Bay Fox news station has classless tweet for Detroit after David Price trade

David Price was traded from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Detroit Tigers moments before the MLB non-waiver trade deadline in the blockbuster deal of the day that sent the 2012 Cy Young award winner to the Motor City.

Price was the biggest name on the market and has had his name linked in connection with a handful of teams in the days and weeks leading up to the 4 p.m. ET deadline to complete trades on Thursday, but the Tigers were a team that came out of left field to acquire the Rays ace and former Cy Young winner who is scheduled to hit free agency after 2015.

Following the trade Fox 13 in Tampa Bay sent out this classless tweet that was later deleted after it drew the fire from people across the country.

Talk about another social media failure.

The twitter account later posted this tweet as a quasi-apology.

Fox Detroit had a perfect response to the disgraceful tweet from the Tampa affiliate.

The original tweet from My Fox Tampa Bay is something you would see from some random fan with no filter or regard for the consequences that would ensure from such a picture, but shame on the Tampa affiliate for not having any common sense and embarrassing themselves with this.
