Not really sure what the Seahawks were going for with this Martin Luther King Day tweet. Perhaps juxtaposing a football playoff victory to the Civil Rights Movement. If so, ouch.
The tweet has since been deleted, but reaction to Seattle’s poorly-conceived idea still remain.
Seahawks posted (then deleted) this MLK Day tweet. Equating the civil rights struggle with a football game? Good god. pic.twitter.com/sTOTthMTZy

Just think: Had they put a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. instead of Russell Wilson everything probably would’ve been okay.
