Best Tweets About Detroit Filing for Bankruptcy

It’s no secret that Detroit has been in rough shape for several decades. A situation that began with the decline of the auto industry has culminated with the announcement that the city is officially filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, making them the largest U.S. city to do so.

Detroit being completely broke is not only the way that ‘Robocop’ begins (here’s hoping that OCP will come in and fix things up “Delta City” style), but its also incredibly sad for Michiganders. And whenever anything happens that’s too depressing to think about, we make a bunch of jokes about it. Here are some funny — as well as some serious and heartfelt — tweets about The D’s financial probs.
