KitchenAid USA is in damage control mode after a tweet from their official Twitter account mocked President Obama’s dead grandmother, Madelyn Lee Payne Dunham, during the presidential debate, saying she’s lucky to have died before he ascended the presidency. Um, people are already saying they won’t support KitchenAid in the future over this.
KitchenAid USA issues apology:
I would like to personally apologize to President @barackobama, his family and everyone on Twitter for the offensive tweet sent earlier.
