Cairo Tweet Plastered on Kenneth Cole Store in SOMA
|Is this a joke?|
The message was not well-received by people across the world, and the retailer quickly took down the post, apologizing for the "poorly timed remark."
"We weren't intending to make light of a serious situation. We understand the sensitivity of this historic moment," the retailer says on Twitter.
And while the message was retracted, it was still found emblazoned on a SOMA Kenneth Cole shop early this morning, according to SFist.
A store employee told SFist, "There's no story here."
