The Philadelphia Flyers just debuted their new mascot named Gritty. The internet is having a field-day. Everyone has an opinion on the new mascot. Most of the opinions follow along the same theme, but they're all so equally funny. Let's start this off by showing the new mascot, so you can truly appreciate the reactions.

It isn't April Fools Day, so apparently this is real life. From a social media standpoint, the Flyers marketing team is full of pure geniuses. They had to know that a mascot that looks like that would spread like wildfire on social media. So bravo to you for that. If that was their goal, which I'm not saying it was, they fully succeeded. The reactions on social media are priceless.

The internet is full of drug and Muppet correlations when it comes to Gritty.
