This tweet from the RIAA’s Senior Vice President of Communications is just about the most asinine thing we’ve read all day. Way to totally trivialise an issue that millions of people care passionately about. Honestly, what are you people thinking? Updated.
We understand that SOPA blackout day is probably a bummer if you’re the mouthpiece for the RIAA, but here’s a tip from your friends on that terrifying blogosphere: If you want to convince anyone other than a member of Congress that you aren’t a bunch of arseholes, maybe try a different tack. Or, if you’re going to be a dick, maybe be a dick who can spell? This man should be fired for being terrible at his job.
Or maybe try a new slogan? The RIAA: Good at Lobbying, Bad at People. [Twitter]
Update: Lamy has deleted the offending tweet. Thank goodness for screengrabs!
