Who had Jose Aldo in the "First Fighter To Embarrass Himself On Twitter After Dana White Announced The New UFC Twitter Policy At The Zuffa Fighters' Summit" pool?

We all knew something would happen, but not necessarily this fast, and certainly not from a champion, who you'd expect to have had it drilled into his head to know better.  Then again, UFC didn't really seem to care about Chael Sonnen tweeting all sorts of racist, xenophobic, and homophobic rhetoric that was really much worse than this before the new policy of encouraging "creative" tweets was announced, so who knows?  Since UFC didn't come down on Sonnen, Aldo is likely just being profoundly stupid (taking "-a" vs "-er"  and maybe some intoxication into account), not racist, maybe I shouldn't really be surprised.
