Uh-oh: SpaghettiOs pulls its ridiculous Pearl Harbor tweet
SpaghettiOs has apologized for and removed a tweeted photo that it received significant criticism for last night that showed its cartoon-noodle mascot waving an American flag in honor of Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The tweet prompted a series of disgusted replies, with some questioning “who is going to be fired tomorrow” and others appropriating #UhOhSpaghettiOs — the brand’s own advertising slogan — as a hashtag. Comedian Patton Oswalt took a number of shots at the tweet as well.
I think the pile on, including Patton Oswalt, was ridiculous.
