The Philadelphia Eagles are advancing to the Super Bowl after defeating the San Francisco 49ers.
However, New York Giants fans are fuming after what the Empire State Building did after the game.
The official Twitter account for the popular landmark shared an image showing the top of the building lit up in the colors green and white. Whoever is in control of the lights did so in support of the Eagles advancing in the NFL playoffs.

Considering the Giants are major rivals of Philadelphia, this is rubbing the fanbase the wrong way. Many can’t fathom that this tweet is real to begin with.
This isn’t a headline from The Onion?

Oh boy. Eagles fans would be furious if this happened.
This is like if the Rocky statue in Philly were wearing a Daniel Jones jersey.

This is a valid question.
Did y'all lose a bet

Some Giants fans think the Empire State Building might be in trouble.
If you need help but can’t tweet, blink your lights twice.

The accuracy of this statement and GIF. At least Eagles fans are happy, right?

Hey, at the end of the day, congratulations to the Eagles. Although they’re heading to the Super Bowl, this is still a weird thing to see from one of the most famous landmarks in New York.
