Looks like someone who had access to KitchenAid’s official U.S. twitter account tweeted an inappropriate message regarding Obama’s dead grandmother.
“Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! ‘She died 3 days b4 he became president’. #nbcpolitics,” @KitchenAidUSA
posted to 24,000 followers before quickly deleting the tweet.
Obama had mentioned his grandmother, Madelyn Lee Payne Dunham, during the debate. She died Nov. 2, 2008, just before Obama was elected president.
Should we all boycott KitchenAid products?????????
UPDATE: Cynthia Soledad, KitchenAid’s senior director of marketing, said in a statement to CNN: ”During the debate tonight, a member of our Twitter team mistakenly posted an offensive tweet from the KitchenAid handle instead of a personal handle. The tasteless joke in no way represents our values at KitchenAid, and that person won’t be tweeting for us anymore … I am deeply sorry to President Obama, his family, and the Twitter community for this careless error.”
