Krispy Kreme takes shot at Patriots over deflated footballs

Krispy Kreme decided to get in on the fun with the deflated footballs controversy, putting out this image on the company’s Twitter account Wednesday.

As ESPN’s Darren Rovell points out, Dunkin Donuts is an official sponsor of the Patriots.

If you’re somehow late to the story, the NFL is investigating the Patriots over the use of deflated footballs during Sunday’s AFC championship. Deflated footballs allow players to grip the ball better in cold weather.

Thank you for adding your delicious — and hilarious — perspective to this controversy, Krispy Kreme.
