Bring Me The News Twitter Fail: Joke about Eden Prairie woman's tragic death doesn't go over well
Rick Kupchella's "Shining" moment ...
Last night, a BringMeTheNews staffer mistakenly sent an offending tweet on the BringMeTheNews Twitter account that she had intended to send on her own personal Twitter account. The tweet, which was immediately deleted, was highly insensitive in making light of a woman's tragic death in Eden Prairie.The staffer has submitted a letter of resignation that we have accepted. The 25 employees at BringMeTheNews, including the staff member at issue, know this is not what we represent.We deeply apologize to our readers and the woman's family. We understand the responsibility we have to always act with the highest standards of decency and care. We will use this incident to reaffirm that to ourselves and the community we serve, and act in a manner that is consistent with our obligation to them.- Rick Kupchella
