Foreign Office advises Germans to be nice to Canadians after upset
The German Foreign Office sent out a humorous tweet on Friday.
In response to Germany’s shocking 4-3 win over Canada in the semifinals of the men’s hockey tournament, they sent out the following tweet advising Germans to treat Canadians kindly and not gloat.
Travel advisory: Germans in Canada should exercise a high degree of empathy. Be nice, don’t gloat, give hugs, buy rounds of hot chocolate.
Just imagine how you would feel if Canada beat us in soccer

The loss for Canada hurts, but the lack of NHL players being involved probably mitigates the disappointment to a degree. But between this and Canada’s women losing the gold medal game to the US, it’s been a rough few days for the Canadians.
