"How on earth is this a lipstick color?" asks verified Twitter user Parker Molloy, posting a photo of 'Underage Red' to a mildly annoyed audience.

While everybody was a little weirded-out at this naming scheme, articles by Business Insider, Forbes and more labeled followers as much more vocal, stating them to be in "outrage" and overall quite angry, explained on Gizmodo recently. This saw Molloy become flooded with Tweets from readers, saying that she was stupid be so angry about such a thing.

 

While Molloy mentioned on her Twitter that no apologies are needed because it's completely unnecessary, the makers of this lipstick even released a statement claiming they will not bow to community pressure. This is one small lesson on how something small taken out of context can really blow out of proportion quickly - don't mess with social media!
