13 Promotional Hashtags That Blew Up In Corporate’s Face
Of all the suits in that boardroom meeting, nobody thought these were bad ideas? Really?! They all looked at the hashtags written up on that whiteboard, and thought there was no way that anyone could misconstrue them as sexually suggestive?
And if you’re a company who is on the business end of some bad PR, make sure you don’t give people a social media megaphone to amplify their distaste. It’s the internet. People will not only call out the ridiculousness of your oversight, they’ll double down and spread it until you’re forced to scrap the whole thing.
These oversights were so hilariously brutal. Part of us feels bad for the innocent, uncorrupted minds who didn’t see the immaturity lurking around the corner. Then again, maybe they weren’t complete oversights. Maybe a disgruntled employee saw the soon-to-be-failure and just nodded along like, “Great idea, Bill. Launch this bad boy tomorrow!” Maybe that disgruntled employee actually suggested it in the first place. How else can you explain the complete buffoonery of these 13 promotional hashtags that immediately blew up in the company’s face?
