ATLANTA (WPRI) — In what appears to be a PR blunder by the Super Bowl LIII host, Mercedes-Benz USA has deleted their own tweet throwing shade at this year’s big game.

This year’s Super Bowl was hosted at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The Tweet read:

If this game weren’t in my stadium, I would have driven away by now. #AClassRealTalk #SB53

The tweet was posted by the Mercedes-Benz USA account and was deleted shortly after it was posted, but after it had already received some significant social engagement.  The tweet garnered 738 likes, 216 re-posts, and 34 comments. 

Super Bowl LIII was NFL history’s lowest scoring championship game with zero touchdowns during the first three quarters.

Mercedes-Benz has not commented since.

Mercedes-Benz pays $324 million for 27 years to hold naming rights to the stadium.

The New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams in this year’s Super Bowl by a score of 13-3, which also earned rank as one of the lowest scoring games of the entire 2018-2019 NFL season and the lowest scoring Super Bowl ever.
