Twitter was up in arms this morning when a simple tweet from an US public relations executive managed to offend just about everybody. The tweet from Sacco reads: “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get Aids. Just kidding. I’m white!”
IAC, a parent company of popular websites like Match.com and Dictionary.com, has released a statement in response to Sacco’s tweet;
“Unfortunately, the employee in question is unreachable on an international flight, but this is a very serious matter and we are taking appropriate action,”
The tweet caused massive uproar on Twitter where the hashtags #HasJustineLandedYet and #JustineSocca have been trending worldwide for several hours and the social networking website shows no sign of relent. Ultimately, this shows the sheer power social networking websites like Twitter has, where the people have the final say.
Sacco seeing the sheer stupidity behind the ignorant tweet, deleted it and her twitter account also disappeared along with it.
Twitter is not taking any of your shit, Justine.
