Congratulations, @Chargers https://t.co/CuYsmpDBVc2017-1-12 17:17:14
The Chargers officially announced their relocation from San Diego to Los Angeles on Thursday, and they quickly started the rebranding process, changing their official Twitter account's avatar to what appears to be their new logo.
"This new mark and fresh take on 'L.A.' is part of a larger identity campaign called 'Fight for L.A.' intended to convey the commitment of the Spanos family and entire Chargers organization to earn the respect and loyalty of Los Angeles football fans," the team wrote in a press release.
Twitter users, however, saw too much resemblance to the Los Angeles Dodgers' logo. The reviews were, to put it kindly, not so super.

The LA Chargers logo looks like some just peeped the Dodgers logo, clicked 'italicize' and turned it in. I'm sick https://t.co/TzZoSSY4W12017-1-12 16:33:09

This looks like the logo of a fake football team from an 80s buddy cop movie where the hero cop's wife is in the stands where there's a bomb https://t.co/wF7pgVpFzw2017-1-12 16:24:35

The Chargers' new logo looks like the logo of a football team in a movie where there's a football game but the movie isn't about football.2017-1-12 17:02:29

This looks like when an agent creates a logo for an athlete so they can sell hats literally only he wears https://t.co/vxKfRCvAVD2017-1-12 16:21:35

Damn, you guys are fast. #Chargers https://t.co/AsAoGKCk4e2017-1-12 16:49:58
Fans still rooting for the Chargers in Los Angeles may not mind the likeness as much if they also copy the Dodgers and make the playoffs.
