USC’s Twitter Account Confuses The School’s Colors, And Trojan Fans Are Furious

USC’s official Twitter account sent a tweet earlier promoting a Vine from First Lady Michelle Obama, imploring students to “share their school pride.” In its tweet, USC said that it is a good day to “wear a touch of crimson & gold.” One problem…crimson is certainly not a USC color. The university’s colors are cardinal and gold, and Trojan fans and alumni on Twitter are letting the school know it.

Well, at least the person in charge of the account definitely knows the difference between crimson and cardinal now.
