Way to go bro! If you haven’t heard about the stuff going on in Egypt then you probably won’t get this tweet and why it probably wasn’t the best thing to say, from the horses mouth:
Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online at http://bit.ly/KCario -KC
The best part? Someone of course has created a fake Kenneth Cole PR Twitter account! I almost choked on my coffee on some of these!
Mr. Cole of course took the Tweet down after backlash he received and made this apology on Facebook:
I apologize to everyone who was offended by my insensitive tweet about the situation in Egypt. I’ve dedicated my life to raising awareness about serious social issues, and in hindsight my attempt at humor regarding a nation liberating themselves against oppression was poorly timed and absolutely inappropriate.
