lying chrysler

so a tweet shows up from chrysler saying ...

I find it ironic that Detroit is known as the #motorcity and yet no one here knows how to fucking drive.

... immediately the company backpedals by saying ...

Our apologies - our account was compromised earlier today. We are taking steps to resolve it.

... but that turns out to be a lie.  the account wasn't compromised -- they paid some numbskull PR agency, who in turn put some idiot in charge of the chrysler twitter account.

i hate hate the fact that no one, nor any corporation, in america can take responsibility for their own actions.


what chrysler should have said as a follow-up was, "sorry for the comment, but we can't be responsible for the way people in detroit," and then refer all future questions to their latest spokesperson, eminem.

how much you wanna bet the true culprit of this fiasco is a 20-something white guy?


3/17 addendum

i win.  the culprit is Scott Bartosiewicz.  28.

yes, he was TXTing while driving and he wants to sue tweetdeck because, come on, it's not really his fault.
