Worker fired for obscene tweet on Chrysler account

By The Associated Press

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. An employee of Chrysler Group LLC’s social media agency has been fired after it was discovered the person posted an obscene tweet on the Chrysler brand’s official account.

The tweet read: “I find it ironic that Detroit is known as the (hash)motorcity and yet no one here knows how to (expletive) drive.”

The Detroit News, Detroit Free Press and WXYZ-TV report the message was deleted from the account.

The Auburn Hills-based automaker posted to its blog later Wednesday apologizing for the actions of the New Media Strategies employee.

Chrysler says it doesn’t “tolerate inappropriate language or behavior.”
