In this day and age, social media sites like Twitter are a great way to connect with friends, reach new audiences, and keep in touch with current events!
Unfortunately, it's also a great way to say some seriously stupid and offensive things!
Just ask Dave and Buster's, the restaurant/bar/arcade that sent out a tweet in hopes to promote “Taco Tuesday!” Unfortunately, the tweet came out as this:
Wow. Apparently racial stereotypes are A-OK in Dave and Buster's book!

It didn't take long for the restaurant to get hit by the backlash of the offensive tweet, and they eventually deleted it and issued an apology, saying:
We sincerely apologize for the tweet that went out today our intention was never to offend anyone please accept our apology
— Dave & Buster's (@DaveandBusters) November 18, 2014
At least they said please, right??
It's pretty mind-blowing that blunders like this still seem to happen on almost a daily basis, and yet companies STILL never seem to learn their lessons!
Maybe Dave and Buster's should just stay off of Twitter for a bit!
