Jacksonville Jaguars mascot shocks crowd with ‘classless’ Ebola joke

Most people have mixed feelings when it comes making jokes about serious subjects – particularly deadly ones. Just ask Gilbert Gottfried.

A Houston Texans fan dressed up in a Hazmat suit Saturday and carried a sign reading, “We ain’t taking nothing back to Houston except a Texan win.”

Dallas Cowboy and Houston Texans fans can duke that one out on their own, but it was a sign the Jacksonville Jaguar’s mascot carried at Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh – mocking the Steelers’ fans “Terrible Towels” – that had critics really riled up.

“Ebola humor” was criticized as going way too far when Jaxon de Ville carried a sign that read, “Towels carry Ebola.”
