The US Army takes down racist-interpreted Tweet

The US Army withdraws a tweet which could easily be seen as a racial attack

After tweeting about challenge posed thanks to "Chinks in special ops' digital and physical armor", the US Army has decided to withdraw this announcement due to it possibly implying "Chinks" as those of Asian decent.




The US Army has been applauded for taking down the possibly racial-insensitive tweet, but also received a lot of criticism from the pubic for there being no current apology issued.


It's obvious that the tweet shouldn't have happened in the first place, it's also sad to think that some social media manager has likely lost their job or are currently being severely reprimanded over this mistake. Justified or not, you decide.
