Sharing a misguided travel trip with over 510,000 followers on it’s official Twitter account Thursday, the message was supposed to be part of the bureau’s series of #springbreakingbadly tag, warning Americans to be vigilant while overseas.

““Not a ‘10’ in the US? Then not a 10 overseas. Beware of being lured into buying expensive drinks or worse – being robbed. #springbreakingbadly”

According to The Guardian, the message bluntly implied that if you’re ugly in the US, you’re probably ugly overseas and should be on alert if people start paying attention to you.

While the message was taken down, it sparked immediate immediate and hilarious responses.

Matt Pearce (@mattdpearce) snarkily referred to the State Department as “your super judgmental friend who says stuff your other friends are too nice to say.”

The State Department twitter feed is generally known for giving bland and obvious advice, making this gaffe all the sweeter.
