When Brands Are Late For Their Own TweetChats
Not an expert. Just an informal response from a social media geek.
Miss Jamaica World took place last night, shortly after contestant Jenaae Jackson was announced to have the ‘best shape’ in the competition this happened:
There is a heavy dose of “WTF!?” leaves your mouth after reading this tweet. At first I wasn’t sure if I should be angry that he thinks his misogyny is ok to tout publicly, or if he should realise that it is his political party that is responsible for fixing the economy.
After reading “most importantly proud father” in his bio I decided this man has serious issues with how he views women.
Instead of taking full responsibility for the stupidity of his tweet and apologising, the honourable MP went on to shift blame to a mix-tape he heard.
Then when he finally apologises he trivialises his apology by using a cliché quote, not acknowledging what exactly was wrong with his statement AND directing his apology to “people in twitterland”
You’re probably, like me, wondering why he thinks that the things he says in “twitterland” stays there. Unfortunately, it does. Well at least it never gets addressed outside of the internet. Although ‘Jamaican Twitter ’ exploded last night. These issues never get addressed in “the real world”.
This isn’t the first time Dr. Campbell has said something incredibly stupid on Social Media:
I’m fed up and frankly Mr. MP
Update: The Jamaica Gleaner made a post about this: http://jamaica-gleaner.com/latest/article.php?id=46640
I’ll see how far this goes in traditional media.
