I tell ya, twitter is just..well, “it’s the Debil!” *in my Water boy mom’s voice* I logged in tonight on twitter and I see these tweets about some woman named Justine Sacco. Who? Yeah I said the same. After some clicks, I found THIS little gem on Justine Sacco’s page.
Very insensitive tweet, right? Yeah…hey whatev it’s twitter…but after camping out in her mentions I see that Justine Sacco is a public relations representative for a major media company, IAC to be exact. IAC owns a few well known websites, do any of these look familiar to you?
The Daily Beast
Oh and how could I forget… BlackPeopleMeet.com
Yeah, I thought some of those would ring a bell. Soooo basically a public relations rep aka PR committed a faux pas. Uncool. You can’t say you’re hacked, Justine. That won’t fly. Speaking of flying, Justine is on her flight to Africa. So…I’m SURE once she lands her phone will probably cause her to orgasm due to the “
IAC delivered this statement:
This is an outrageous, offensive comment that does not reflect the views and values of IAC. Unfortunately, the employee in question is unreachable on an international flight, but this is a very serious matter and we are taking appropriate action.
Ummm how are you trying to do PR on YOUR PR person?
And just what might that “appropriate action” mean? Being fired, HOPEFULLY. Twitter is in an uproar, which is any typical day, so her mentions have been just. WOW. So of COURSE Justine is a trending topic on twitter. #HasJustineLandedYet Here’s a few that stuck out.
EYE. CAN. NOT. BREATHE!!!!!!!!!!!!! That picture tho LMAOOOOOOOOO
As with all celebrities or VIP’s she’s going to have been “HACKED” or her “phone was stolen” or who knows what. Any bets on whether or not she’ll admit that was her and come up with the BEST PR apology ever?
Around 11:55 Justine Sacco has deleted her offensive tweet…who does she think she is?? Chris Brown???? Deleting tweets, smh. She’s going to delete her twitter, I’m sure.
See anything different????
