The Los Angeles Chargers are facing backlash on social media after tweeting out a photo.
The tweet read in part, “It's #SaluteToService week and we want to see how members of the military #RepTheBolts!”

Shortly after the tweet was sent out, people quickly spotted a distinct difference between the photo posted and the original.
The original photo was cropped to eliminate “San Diego” from the flag held by the service members.
Following the tweet, a Twitter account called "fightforSD" posted the following photo calling out the Chargers.
