Dulux has apologised for mocking Tottenham Hotspur on the social media following the announcement of its new partnership with English side.
Tottenham revealed Dulux as their official paint supplier on Thursday.
The Dulux Twitter account replied to other users’ tweets by mocking Spurs’ lack of recent silverware, posting a picture of an empty trophy cabinet and suggesting the company’s dog mascot could “do a better job” at centre-back.
However, the tweets were deleted afterwards.
“We’re deeply sorry for the posts from Dulux this morning in response to the announcement of our relationships with Spurs,” said the company.
“These do not reflect how proud we are to be the official paint supplier of the club.
“We’re investigating what happened and apologise to all Spurs fans.”
Spurs responded to Dulux’s apology on Twitter by saying: “We’ll gloss over it this time.”
