Vyralize: If you don't know who Justine Sacco is, then don't feel bad. Most of us didn't until she posted a rather racist remark on her Twitter account which happened to become a worldwide trend.
Just how stupid can she be?
this means she is going to Africa to get gangbanged.
She's white and blonde. Need I say anything more?
I know, this makes Adam Orth look smart lol.
Anyone else find it funny that her AIDS joke went Viral?
Many times it has been proven over and over... The truth can hurt!
Her statement doesn't even make logical sense. Idiot.
"I'm white" - That's the most stupid of the entire statement. I thought racism no longer exist, but each day, in football and with ridiculous statements like this, it just breaks my heart completely. To continue to believe that one race has superiority over another is completely moronic. Shame on her! #Sad
I think someone is trying to dissect the statement a little to much! The whole statement is designed to be stereotypical. The fact that she's white so cant catch AIDS is no more stereotypical than saying because she's going to Africa she's going to catch AIDS. No need to over analyse it. The whole statement is ridiculous no part more so than the other.
What a moron. She just ruined her career.
This should give us all hope, you can totally lack basic communication skills and etiquette and still be the corporate communications manager at a big corporation.
she was hot though which is a huge advantage that many don't have. Being good looking often overrides stupidity.
Wh--what? How can one be so incredibly stupid? Mind blown.
Who cares what she says? It's not like she's important or anything.
She kinda is given that she heads the PR department for a major media firm.
If she wasn't important, she won't break the headlines.. She just got the fame she wanted, a LAME fame!
I always have to laugh a little when something like this happens...Do people realize that they DON'T have to put every little thought on the internetz for everyone to see?
Christmas present. You are fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This just reinforces my belief that social media like Twitter just enables the "stupid" to come out of people.
Lololololololol how stupid of her. I know we're not supposed to laugh at people, but she did do it in public where everybody can see it, thus justifying the laughter of her own stupidity. How many people have been laid off this year just from posting things on Twitter? I just hope this one instance isn't counted as another reason why many people think white blonde girls are dumb as bricks... Wait, bricks aren't even close to this girl's stupidity. Did I mention she was stupid for this?
This was just really uncalled for. Where did she find the need to post this on a social website... People these days.
Its so offensive its funny. I mean she's got balls for saying that. Spike Lee gets to say all he wants and nobody cares, but white chick does it and gets fired?
Should be fired again. It such a shame and a disgrace!!!
It is almost as sad as peoples constant use of hashtags, originally known as the pound symbol. This lady can say whatever she wants. Why people care is the real tragedy. She may or may not be racist, move on. If she was a comedian people would just be screaming about how she is so funny.
