*Clorox made a mess and offended some folks when they tweeted about the new multicultural emojis released for iPhones, according to CBS SF Bay Area.
“New emojis are all right, but where’s the bleach?” Clorox tweeted. These new emojis of color include Black and Brown people’s faces.
Some folks called the tweet racially insensitive while others said folks were being too sensitive. Nevertheless, Clorox removed the tweet and issued an apology.
“Wish we could bleach away our last tweet. Didn’t mean to offend.”
The company said it was referring only to the new toilet, bath and red wine emoji icons.
Wish we could bleach away our last tweet. Didn't mean to offend – it was meant to be about all the emojis that could use a clean up.
