Oops. And that is why any social media post by a company needs to be proof-read by a second party, kiddies.

I have only once seen a F-bomb that no one complained about and that was on 911. A headline on IOL was 'We're ****ing dying in here!' - quoting a man who'd called his wife from the West Tower.

The F word is used 11 times on one page in a MBB article. Awaiting an apology...

Based on this, I would be so in trouble all the time:

“The lesson here is a journalist should not say anything on any social media account that they would not say to their mom.”
