Nothing beats dumb tweets (especially horrible tweets from celebrities). We live in an age where everyone feels the need to be on Twitter, either to market their brand or express their thoughts. But so many people are just terrible at it.
It's surprising that so many companies and individuals still don't understand how much backlash they can face for posting something insensitive or offensive. So, here are the most groan-worthy Twitter fails ever. Every one of them will make you cringe, and will make you wonder what the person behind the tweet was thinking. Some of them may have had good intentions, but ultimately they were tweets that backfired horrifically for the person or company involved. A lot of them have never recovered from the embarrassment.
