It appears Kenneth Cole is as clueless about the “laws of playing in the twitter field” as the rest of us. Kenneth Cole made a major twitter boo boo today.

Check out the infamous tweet now:

Who does this?!

Kenneth later posted this apology:

I apologize to everyone who was offended by my insensitive tweet about the situation in Egypt. I’ve dedicated my life to raising awareness about serious social issues, and in hindsight my attempt at humor regarding a nation liberating themselves against oppression was poorly timed and absolutely inappropriate.

Kenneth Cole, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer

——- Friendly advice for Kenneth Cole —–

Never make jokes about tragedies. It’s oh-so-tempting to try to make light of grim situations, sad stories and global traumas. Don’t try to make it funny. That’s what comedians are for. Kenneth Cole is a fashion designer known for sharp-looking dress shoes, not sharp wit. When the world’s attention is fixated on one event, sometimes it’s not the best idea to jump up and down with the “Look at me!” routine. The unrest in Egypt isn’t the Super Bowl. It’s a troubling story with historical implications. I’m just saying!
