Etisalat Deletes Sexist Tweet After Social Media Outrage

The giant telecom operator Etisalat Egypt account was called out by several social media users for a sexist tweet mocking girls by saying, “guys park their cars in a min while girls in 15 mins”.

In less than 12 hours of posting the tweet, Etisalat Egypt realized that they should take it down, just like nothing happened. Unfortunately, it forgot that the social network’s observant users are adept at taking screenshots of Twitter fails, especially in the case of multi-billion dollar companies.
