Nets blow Jewish Heritage Night t-shirt with misspelling (pic)


The Brooklyn Nets held the team’s Jewish Heritage Night on Thursday at Barclays Center. And while the team’s intentions were noble, one slip-up resulted in the Nets having egg on their face.

A t-shirt printed up by the team to commemorate the evening and available for purchase was intended to have “Represent Brooklyn” printed on them written in Hebrew. The trouble was the shirt had “Brooklyn” misspelled.

Oy vey.

Once the error was pointed out by keen-eyed observers on social media, the Nets were quick to rectify the situation and offered up an apology on Twitter.

Shirts with the correct spelling were available in the team’s store by halftime. And the Nets topped the Philadelphia 76ers by a score of 100-91, a fitting way to end Jewish Heritage Night.
