A Las Vegas bar has apologized after posting an insult on its marquee following the Super Bowl.

The marquee for the Blind Tiger Bar & Grill, located near Pecos and Sunset roads, said “Broncos couldnt beat the sick kids at St Judes” following the Seahawks’ 43-8 thrashing of the Broncos on Sunday.

Photos of the sign were posted to social media, urging people to call the bar and demand it be taken down.

“This is one of the most insensitive things I have ever seen … Call and give them a piece of your mind!!” Danielle Howard posted to Instagram.

Sin City Las Vegas posted the photo on its own page, where some commenters defended the sign, while others called it insulting.
