Buffalo Wild Wings gets roasted after Tweet aimed at the Astros

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston Astros fans aren't too pleased with Buffalo Wild Wings.

The restaurant retweeted a story about a European soccer club's punishment for cheating.

The caption read, "THAT's how you punish a team that cheats."

With the Astros sign stealing scandal dominating the headlines, everyone assumed the tweet was aimed at the Astros.

While thousands of people "liked" the tweet, one person replied "I don't even like wings, but I'm getting Pluckers this weekend thanks to your tweet".

Another person tweeted, "Sound like you're asking the fourth biggest city in America to avoid your restaurant. Your wish is granted."

In a post on the ABC13 Instagram page, Astros pitcher Lance McCullers commented that the restaurant's tweet was a "Last attempt to gain attention towards their failing franchise."

Saturday morning, Buffalo Wild Wings followed up their original tweet with an apology to the City of Houston, saying they deserved the roast they got in return.
