The Free Application for Federal Student Aid has apologized after tweeting a meme that indirectly called applicants poor.

The tweet above was sent out in a comedic fashion with the popular line from the hit film Bridesmaids. After many students tweeted FAFSA about how offended they were, the tweet was deleted and replaced with an apology.

With over a million students using FAFSA to pay their way through college, loans and serious financial debt are no laughing matter. Some applicants understood the humor behind the joke, but others believed that the government site was out of line.

It’s safe to say that after this meme fail, FAFSA will stay far away from internet games and keep it professional. At least we hope so.
