Someone is in a pickle.
The mascot for the Portland Pickles, a summer season baseball crew within the West Coast League, had its Twitter privileges revoked for sharing a questionable photograph throughout a social media takeover.
On Wednesday, Dillon, the crew’s dill pickle mascot, tweeted, “new phone who dis” with a suggestive photograph that confirmed the mascot sitting down, showing to reveal his inexperienced genitalia.
Tough search for mascots all over the place 😂👍

The crew addressed the photograph when some Twitter customers discovered the put up to be tasteless.
“We have ended our mascot takeover. It’s come to our attention that this photo can be misinterpreted as a disturbing image,” the Portland Pickles tweeted.
The crew added, “Dillon would like to go on record and say that he was trying to give his fans a thumbs up.”
The Pickles stated “Dillion is in timeout” in response to the Lexington Legends, who referred to as the state of affairs a “tough look for mascots everywhere.”
MASCOT TWITTER TAKEOVER! Our mascot, Dillon, will likely be taking up our Twitter account NOW! Our subsequent tweet will likely be him. Feel free to ask any questions or simply present your assist! pic.twitter.com/TC2VnGeMto

If the mascot is out of a job after the Twitter debacle, male grooming firm Manscaped tweeted, “we’re hiring, Dillion.”
The official Twitter account for Snickers tweeted a photograph of its signature sweet bar wrapped inside a pickle, writing, “Maybe you need a SNICKLE.”
The Pickles replied, “This is making a bad situation worse,” to which Manscaped wrote, “pretty nuts tbh.”
The Pickles emerged in Portland as a wood-bat membership in 2015. They play dwelling video games at Walker Stadium in Portland’s Lents Park. In November, they opened a team store and leisure clubhouse referred to as ‘The Pickle Jar” in downtown Portland.
