As many of you know by now, the LA Galaxy got waxed in the second leg of their CCL tie with Santos Laguna. During the match, the Galaxy's social media person tweeted out a very fair assessment of the team's overall perfomance.
That's a very humorous way to shrug off the sadness that comes with a walloping like the Galaxy got. All fun and games, right? Not so fast. While a lot of fans, especially those of different teams, thought it was funny, a large bulk of LA Galaxy supporters took offense to the tweet. "How can the team I love so much just shrug off an inexcusable performance?!" "Fans spent hard earned money to follow the team to Mexico to watch the team play! And this is how you respond to that?" they chimed. Those are valid questions, and are to be dealt with between the Galaxy and their supporters. I'm here to show you that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ is not that big of a deal. In fact, TEN other MLS teams have tweeted the same emoji, and more times than not, in similar embarrassing circumstances.
Here are all ten tweets:
Granted, not all of those tweets were sent while the teams were getting slapped around, but for the most part, when a team tweets out "¯\_(ツ)_/¯," it's just not that big of a deal.
