(USA Today) Another company learns the pitfalls of social media.
The appliance seller KitchenAid has apologized for an “irresponsible tweet” about President Obama’s late grandmother, whom he invoked during Wednesday night’s debate in a discussion about Social Security and Medicare.
Deploying Twitter-speak, KitchenAid sent this message: “Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! ‘She died 3 days b4 he became president.”
Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, who helped raise the future president, died the same week as the 2008 election.
