Pope Francis Ribbed On Twitter After Accidentally Tagging Saints In Tweet


October 13, 2019

Pope Francis’ prayer game might be air-tight, but his Twitter skills could use some work.

Five new saints — Cardinal John Henry Newman, Giuseppina Vannini, Mariam Thresia Chiaramel Mankidiyan, Dulce Lopes Pontes, and Marquerite Bays — were canonized by the Supreme Pontiff on Sunday morning in the Vatican City. The Pope (real name Jorge Mario Bergoglio) recognized the aforementioned saints in a tweet.

There was just one problem, however: His Holiness accidentally used an emoji hashtag for the New Orleans Saints. You know, the NFL team.

Check this out:

Gosh darn it!

Cue the replies:

Not even the Pope is immune from being ratio’d on Twitter.

Be better, Francis.
