People Are Outraged Over This Cinnabon Tweet
Cinnabon Carrie Fisher Tweet
People were not happy about Cinnabon’s tweet as tribute to Carrie Fisher. The tweet which was quickly taken down said, “RIP Carrie Fisher, you’ll always have the best buns in the galaxy.” Along with a picture of a cinnamon Fisher with buns for hair. Now I don’t know about you, but that didn’t strike me as offensive. Too soon? Maybe. I guess you have to be careful what you tweet these days.

However, I can understand why people are upset. When a beloved public icon like Carrie Fisher passes, a tweet like this can be considered a marketing opportunity for companies like Cinnabon. I just think that it was too soon. This almost looks like a meme. That type of thing doesn’t fly on social media platforms like Twitter these days.
