Bayern Munich apologise for mocking Bremen with Beyonce tweet
Two goals from Robert Lewandowski and another from Thiago saw Bayern Munich slip past Bochum unhindered and into the semifinals of the DFB Pokal on Wednesday evening.
As is usually the case, the German club's official US Twitter account live-tweeted the match, posting a series of reaction gifs throughout.
After securing the 3-0 away victory, Bayern celebrated booking their safe passage into the last four of the tournament with a short clip of Beyonce being all fierce and what not.

However, the tweet was seen as disrespectful by many Bremen fans, who saw the tweet as an attempt to belittle their beloved club.
Indeed, many Bremen supporters promptly chose to remind Bayern of the importance of remaining humble by subtly bringing to attention all the times their side had thumped the Bavarian giants in the past.
After finding themselves on the receiving end of a tidal wave of consternation for their perceived arrogance, Bayern ultimately backed down and apologised for their earlier attack of hubris.

That'll teach them not to mess around with forces beyond their control; namely Beyonce.
