SALVADOR, Brazil -- For goodness sake, Royal Dutch Airlines, why not add a man eating a taco while you're at it?

After the Netherlands topped Mexico in the Round of 16 on Sunday, KLM decided to have a little fun with Team Mexico.

A little too much fun.

Actually, they decided to inappropriately toss out every stereotype they could find -- other than the taco, of course.

Whoever manages KLM's Twitter account tweeted out a photo of a "Departure" gate with an image of a "Mexican man" photoshopped in beside it.

The image had a sombrero, a mustache and a goatee -- something the airline is taking a lot of heat for.

Because, you know, all Spanish Americans look like a mariachi band.

It's likely most in Mexico won't really care.

The game, the loss more specifically, is far more important.

That said, KLM's stupidity had to be called out even after it deleted the tweet.

How would they like it if everyone just started walking around with fake doobies and drinking Heineken?
