Dulux apologizes for painting Tottenham in a bad light

LONDON (AP) – Tottenham’s newest sponsor didn’t exactly paint a great picture of the club when they launched their partnership. Paint supplier Dulux apologized after its social media team mocked Tottenham on Twitter shortly after it was announced that the company had become the Premier League club’s “official paint supplier”. The tweets included a jibe about Tottenham’s lack of trophies and a barb suggesting that the company’s dog mascot would make a better defender than the Spurs players. Dulux said “we are very sorry” after the tweets sparked a stream of social media ridicule about the club in north London. Tottenham brushed off the mockery and said, “We’re going to gloss it over.”
