Jacksonville Jaguars Mascot Blasted for Ebola Sign
Bad mascot! Bad!
The job of a mascot for a bad team is tough. The product on the field is not very entertaining so it is sometimes up to him (or her) to be the entertainment. When you can’t talk and are inside a large costume options are limited so you have to get creative.
Jaxon de Ville, the mascot for the Jacksonville Jaguars, thought he was being just that when he held up a sign referencing the deadly Ebola disease:
