This isn’t my normal week to post but as this is happening in real-time I feel this is super appropriate for our class and how our discussions have been going each week.
Here is a link from Business Insider with a good overview of a situation and the response that is currently happening with the Home Depot.
Basically, the agency who runs the Home Depot account tweeted an image with a question in order to garner engagement and conversation amongst is 160,000+ followers. The image was taken to be offensive and the backlash on social was immediate.
Read the article yourself. What is your take on the situation. Was it an intentionally “racist” post seeing the past posts? How about the Home Depot’s response? Was it correct, heavy handed or just right?
