More Ghouls: Celeb Boutique uses #Aurora shooting to sell dress

http://twitter.com/#!/celebboutique/status/226369632154570752

Unbelievably ghoulish and repugnant. Worse, they added a winky face. Because a tragic massacre is a wink-worthy butt of jokes and a reason to try to profit and hawk dresses. Disgusting.

Twitter users agree and were quick to rightly call @CelebBoutique on the carpet.

HT @andylevy OH COME ON MAN RT @celebboutique: #Aurora is trending, clearly about our Kim K inspired #Aurora dress 😉

“Red Eye’s” Andy Levy calls it the worst tweet of the day. Indeed.

Well, here's your worst tweet of the day. RT @celebboutique: #Aurora is trending, clearly about our Kim K inspired #Aurora dress 😉

— andy levy (@andylevy) July 20, 2012

Go hawk your wares elsewhere, Celeb Boutique. Those with souls don’t find tragedies a cause for joking nor for profit.

Update: More disgusted reaction from those who have moral compasses to guide them.

. @celebboutique should delete their disgusting tweet, apologize and make substantial donation to victims of #Aurora

— Danny Brown (@DannyBrown) July 20, 2012

Yes.

CelebBoutique may soon be trending and, thankfully, not in the good way. They are also getting the business on Facebook.

Social media response to insensitive @celebboutique post https://t.co/0w6qaTFq Not so funny any longer, is it @celebboutique?

People. DIED.

https://twitter.com/llondo/status/226385300446904320

Update: Celeb Boutique just deleted the tweet. Too late, soulless ghouls. All of Twitter already knows that you care more about hawking a dress than you do about people who died.

They now tweeted an “apology.”

https://twitter.com/celebboutique/status/226389454745649153

Oh, they “misunderstood.” Well, Twitter users don’t misunderstand: You are reprobates who sought to profit off of a tragedy.

https://twitter.com/celebboutique/status/226390298736066561

Really? Then why the winky face, Celeb Boutique? That indicates that you clearly knew that the trending topic was not about your dress.

Update: More faux apologizing.

We are incredibly sorry for our tweet about Aurora – Our PR is NOT US based and had not checked the reason for the trend, at that time our

Twitter isn’t buying what Celeb Boutique is again trying to soullessly sell.

YOU FAIL RT: «@celebboutique this was not intentional & will not occur again. Our most sincere apologies for both the tweet and situation.»
