Houston Rockets' Twitter Put Down Mavericks With Gun and Horse Emoji

? ? Shhhhh. Just close your eyes. It will all be over soon. — Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets) April 29, 2015

The Houston Rockets closed out the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday in Western Conference playoff action. As the Rockets pulled away in the final minutes, the official team Twitter account tweeted a horse head and gun emoji. It means they’re going to shoot the horse. The Mavs mascot is a horse. Will emoji animal rights groups complain and have this tweet deleted? Only time will tell.
