IAC Has Responded To Its PR Director's Cringeworthy Tweet

Justine Sacco, the head of PR for IAC, the parent company of Vimeo, Tinder, and OkCupid, tweeted something really cringeworthy a few hours ago:

Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white!

Not good.

IAC just reached out to Valleywag with  http://valleywag.gawker.com/and-now-a-funny-holiday-joke-from-iacs-pr-boss-1487284969/@sambiddle" rel="nofollow - an official statement:

This is an outrageous, offensive comment that does not reflect the views and values of IAC. Unfortunately, the employee in question is unreachable on an international flight, but this is a very serious matter and we are taking appropriate action.

She is still in the air en route to Africa and in addition to getting her walking papers when she lands, Black Twitter is GOING IN!

It's sad that stuff like this doesn't even shock me anymore.

I'm disgusted. Hopefully, they handle it for real.

I am sure she was trying to say that AIDS is predominantly a problem faced by blacks. I don't know the stats, but I'm sure the vast majority of AIDS cases in Africa are in black people. No shock there. If she's the head of PR, though, she should know how to communicate successfully... and that's reason enough to fire her

im sure once she touches down she's going to give the usual white people excuse of "it was a joke. I didnt mean to offend anyone, i'll be careful in the future". they always give that excuse

When racists come out to play, the internet has a field day! #JustineHasLanded

If you’ve logged on to twitter within the last few hours, you should by now heard of Justine Sacco’s ridiculous tweet about her current trip to South Africa (Cape Town, I believe) that she believed, like so many others before her, to be humourous in nature although it clearly showed her level of ignorance, bigotry and down-right stupidity.

In case you’re wondering who the hell Justine Sacco is, she’s not just odd Mary Jane, she’s actually the senior director of corporate communications at InterActiveCorp, the company which owns Vimeo, The Daily Beast, OkCupid, Match.com etc. So yeah, the outrage is more than justified here (although it would be regardless of her position). You’d really expect a whole lot better from someone that works in PR. What you say on the internet is written in forever ink, as long as someone is fast enough to screen grab (and someone always is).

As for what happened to Justine, well, word on twitter says that she’s been fired and her entire twitter account has been deleted. Guess she wasn’t quite ready for the backlash to what she thought was a witty tweet. Good riddance.

A representative from IAC released the following:

“This is an outrageous, offensive comment that does not reflect the views and values of IAC. Unfortunately, the employee in question is unreachable on an international flight, but this is a very serious matter and we are taking appropriate action.”

Her father is Desmond Sacco, the fifth wealthiest person in SA. Made his fortune during apartheid on the backs of the black Africans his daughter now laughs at. 

I want to say something, but it's too damn evil to type up so I'll just say I hope karma comes knocking on her privileged door soon.

I hope someone is waiting for her when she gets off the plane to punch her in her face.

Her sorry ass apology

"Words cannot express how sorry I am, and how necessary it is for me to apologize to the people of South Africa, who I have offended due to a needless and careless tweet. There is an AIDS crisis taking place in this country, that we read about in America, but do not live with or face on a continuous basis. Unfortunately, it is terribly easy to be cavalier about an epidemic that one has never witnessed firsthand.

“For being insensitive to this crisis — which does not discriminate by race, gender or sexual orientation, but which terrifies us all uniformly — and to the millions of people living with the virus, I am ashamed.

“This is my father’s country, and I was born here. I cherish my ties to South Africa and my frequent visits, but I am in anguish knowing that my remarks have caused pain to so many people here; my family, friends and fellow South Africans. I am very sorry for the pain I caused.”

Perhaps all the #HasJustineLandedYet backlash made this PR girl come to her senses. We’re not sure if this apology will help this PR girls career. After hitting the send button on the horrid tweet she was soon after fired from the internet giant, Interactive Corp.

I am glad she got fired and she might lose her US visa too...
Her father is from SA, and he called a f*cking idiot. It does not mean he is not racist; it just means that he is pissed that he said something so stupid
