MSNBC Tweets Right Wing will hate Cheerios commercial and then they apologize…but why did they tweet it in the first place?


This is the new Cheerios commercial that will be featured during the Super Bowl. Earlier this morning MSNBC tweeted the following
” Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/biracial family.” Right wing organizations expressed their disgust and the network later apologized and deleted the tweet. MSNBC.com executive editor Richard Wolffe tweeted the following “The Cheerios tweet from @msnbc was dumb, offensive and we’ve taken it down. That’s not who we are at msnbc.” The truth is that it is who they are or it never would have been tweeted. oo often we see statements made on the left and right that are explosive and often offensive and until someone says I am offended the statement stands. Only when someone or enough someones complain does a company feel the need to put out the obligatory apology. We live in a world where no one is really sorry they are only caught and when you get caught the next step is to say sorry and move on.
