I've seen lots of people say stupid stuff on Twitter and Facebook, including; but not limited to, politicians, actors, musicians, all the way down to just regular everyday people. But this has to be one of, if not the dumbest thing I've ever seen a senior executive say via their social media account. Justine Sacco, Senior director of public relations for a IAC; InterActiveCorp, which owns popular websites like OkCupid, Match.com, CollegeHumor, The Daily Beast and Vimeo just to name a few, posted this tweet from her account while in London on Saturday.

Now, i'm sure it is possible that Sacco's account was hacked, but highly unlikely. Although since apologizing for the tweet, Sacco's account appears to have been deleted. Meanwhile, her tweet had become a trending topic of global discussion, with brands and web celebrities alike joining in the fray. And yes, she has also been fired by IAC, and rightfully so, idiot.
