Bad Idea, Kenneth Cole. Bad Idea

Just a few minutes ago, whoever is running the Kenneth Cole feed responded to the collective outrage of the internet by tweeting "Re Egypt tweet: we weren't intending to make light of a serious situation. We understand the sensitivity of this historic moment -KC"

Good thing, I had just assumed that they were trying to make a quick buck off a trending topic in the most tasteless way possible. I feel better now.
