Fashion designer Kenneth Cole apologized yesterday (February 3rd) for sending out what he later described as an “insensitive” tweet that used the crisis in Egypt to promote his spring line, causing an online outrage. Cole’s original Twitter message read, “Millions are in an uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online,” and contained a link to his collection. The message was taken down about five hours later and Cole apologized on Facebook, writing, “I’ve dedicated my life to raising awareness about serious social issues, and in hindsight, my attempt at humor regarding a nation liberating themselves against oppression was poorly timed and absolutely inappropriate.”
