Think before you emoji!
That's what the Houston Rockets' social media manager learned the hard way after a tweet jabbing at their opponents got him fired!
The man in question, Chad Shanks, was excited when the Rockets were heading towards a victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.
But some people thought Shanks took it too far when the Rockets' Twitter showed an emoji of a pistol next to a horse, suggesting the Mavs were about to meet their doom (above).
The Rockets fired Shanks shortly after the tweet. Shanks apologized for pushing the envelope too far and is finding the silver lining in the incident:
Earlier this week, we reported that the next Baltimore Orioles game would be completely closed to the public because of the mass protests over the death of Freddie Gray.
So Wednesday's game between the O's and Chicago White Sox was strange, as the teams played in a near empty stadium at Camden Yards.
Though not all of the players on the field were phased by the lack of fans. Orioles' catcher Caleb Joseph didn't seem to notice the absence at all!
Before the game started, Joseph went up to the empty stands along the third-base line to sign fake autographs for the imaginary fans. The catcher then tipped his cap to the empty seats as he would for an applauding crowd!
The highlarious joke served as great comic relief during Baltimore's state of turmoil — and the O's won the game 8 - 2!
Ch-ch-check out the Vine (below) to see the catcher's funny interaction with no one!
After a day filled with mass protests over the death of Freddie Gray, the city of Baltimore is trying to pick up the pieces in the face of civil unrest.
Just a few miles away from the action, the Baltimore Orioles were forced to close down Camden Yards and postpone yesterday's and today's games against the Chicago White Sox.
However, while the protests are slowly starting to die down, it looks like it might be awhile before O's fans actually see any MLB action in Maryland.
In an official statement, the team announced that they would be pushing their Wednesday night game to an earlier afternoon slot. But the real shock came when they announced the game would be COMPLETELY closed to the public.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred commented on the decision, saying:
This just melts our hearts!
Olympic ice skaters Tanith Belbin and Charlie White tied the knot on Saturday night.

Apparently what happens in Vegas does NOT stay in Vegas for very long.
Dancing With The Stars' Erin Andrews' boyfriend Jarret Stoll was arrested in Las Vegas this weekend when he was caught trying to sneak drugs into a pool party at the MGM Grand.
The Los Angeles Kings star was reportedly trying to get into the Wet Republic event, in which all attendees were being patted down by security guards before entering.
However, this didn't seem to raise any red flags for Jarret, and guards eventually ended up finding 3.3 grams of cocaine and 8.1 grams of the drug known as "Molly" in his board shorts.
He immediately fessed up to everything and was booked at a nearby jail where he was later released after posting $5,000 bail.
Erin has yet to speak out, but the Kings released a statement on the incident, saying:
