Price trade inspires Twitter burns between Tampa, Detroit TV stations

Make a joke about Detroit, and Detroit burns you right back.

That’s what Fox 13 Tampa Bay found out Thursday night when the station posted a jab on its Twitter account referencing the Rays’ trade of pitcher David Price to the Detroit Tigers.

The tweet featured a photo of a particularly rough-looking corner of inner-city Detroit, side-by-side with a sunny, Tampa Bay area beach and the caption: “Good luck David.”

Fox 13 eventually deleted the Tweet and apologized (with an Anchor Man meme), but that didn’t stop Detroit’s Fox 2 from firing back with a tweet of their own. Theirs showed mostly empty seats during a game at Tropicana Field, side-by-side with a photo of the Tigers’ Comerica Park completely packed with fans.

In the jargon of the internet, that’s what’s called an “epic burn.”
