Lockheed Martin tried to do a #WorldPhotoDay that backfires

Lockheed Martin tried to do a #WorldPhotoDay that backfires

Context: There was a bomb that hit a school bus in Yemen and killed children, and it was discovered that Lockheed Martin manufactured the type of bomb that was used. Twitter users were quick to point that out. The tweet was subsequently deleted.

Why would Lockheed Martin want publicity in general? I feel like that's the kind of company you want to not have attention.

The most insane thing is that they get called out for their obvious role in not only participating in, but actively promoting the military industrial complex that results in bombing a school, and nothing will happen to them.

They still need to sell stocks

If it was a Deadpool thermos it would be fitting humour.

This isn't a corporate facepalm, this is just someone making a mistake. The companies producing these will be largely unaffected.

Also looks like the AOL running man

FatForever? yeah.. I dont need a store for that.

Maybe people go in trying to prove the sign wrong. That's one way to get people in the door.

It's "Fit Forever"

Sounds like a case of the /sub/misleadingthumbnails

Can you be sure the real one doesn't have these spelling mistakes? A lot of Chinese tech companies don't give a shit if they misspell English words.

I seriously wanted to buy that unit until I saw this obviously faked 'certificate', I decided to buy another device.

Can you not see the spelling mistakes?

Oof, im blind. I thought he was the one missreading it

ARGH DARN IT LOL

But in all seriousness, I wish GioFilms covered this sub and included this post.

Lol, they got it wrong in the header and the caption under the photo.

It was amazing, I still remember reading about today's test flight two weeks ago.

(Sorry, had to tachyon a little humor...)

It’s pretty shocking, when I saw it, I checked for TheOnion or click hole or something. The best part is “Commercial flights [deaths] next?”

A trip to the sun would take 4 minutes. Sweet!

Local Pawn Shop straight doxxes a guy. Not sure where to post this but wtf?!?

He legitimately received bad service and so they doxx him and yell at him.

I was just looking for a pawn shop to go to this morning.....they reply to a few people in this way. Think I won’t be going to that one though

/sub/businesstantrums might be another good fit for this. What a crazy owner...

You should leave them a review saying how you were going to go there but then heard about their customer service and decided to shop elsewhere. Maybe they'll learn something

Edit: maybe even give them your full name in the review so they can't doxx you.

I had one of those. Then they sent out an email changing their name.

Just found it while cleaning up, I worked somewhere that tried to push ISIS payments and when they changed the name we had to toss a ton of marketing material as well.

Those into credit card churning will know this product very well. Easy way to earn points and miles!

Oh this is not going to end well

They literally used a screenshot from the video of his death.

What the hell is that meme even trying to convey...

Ahhh. So it was the marketing company they used. Wish they outed them so no one would use their shitty marketing service.

Reddit doesn't do a favor for itself with that.

That´s fucking disgusting.

Well, it's fine to use the word starving. However, when coupled with a picture of a starving man, being examined by someone who looks a lot like Dr. Mengele, it's not a good look.

Protip: use a custom mobile client like Sync, Boost, Reddit is Fun, Narwhal or Apollo. They all have pro versions, which have no ads at all, and their ads are actually normal unlike Reddit's "GET THERAPY" ads and this shit.

I'm sorry, I don't know what I'm looking at. Is there context? What does the TIL have to do with it? Is it the picture?
