The Pennsylvania Ballet has taken to social media to refute a disappointed Eagles fan’s claim that the team played “like they were wearing tutus.”
Last week, a Facebook user by the name of Jerry Ward went on the social media platform in an effort to criticize the footballl team’s losing season by equating their poor on-field performance with ballet performers, Philly.com reported.
Jonathan Stiles, marketing manager for the Pennsylvania Ballet, fired back at the insult in a lengthy Facebook retort which smartly pointed out that, had the Eagles played with the athletic capability of ballet dancers, they indeed could have had a winning season.
“The Eagles have not played like they were wearing tutus. If they had, Chip Kelly would still be a head coach, and we'd all be looking forward to the playoffs," Stiles wrote in the Facebook comeback.
