Jaguars Release Statement About Ebola Sign During Steelers Game

Call it bad judgement at the sake of trying to be funny, but in the end it was a sign that blew up the internet after it was posted.

Jaguars mascot Jaxson DeVille was pictured with a sign that read “Towels Carry Ebola,” – poking fun at the Steelers’ Terrible Towels.

Today, team president Mark Lamping released a statement about the sign and the backlash the team got from it.

Lamping’s full statement:

“Improvisation and humor have both been key elements to the character of Jaxson DeVille, especially when he performs at home games. On Sunday, the person who has played Jaxson DeVille over the past 20 seasons made an extremely poor decision in that regard. The team was unaware of this inappropriate sign, which was hand-made by Jaxson during the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game, until after it had been displayed. We are handling the matter internally and taking it very seriously. We extend our sincerest apologies to anyone who was offended.”
