This really happened today. Rookie Moms, a site normally dedicated to doling out advice for new moms and has a twitter following over 87,000, felt the wrath of twitter after naively tweeting about their hunt for creative baby costumes for “a variety of skin colors”.
After a slew of angry tweets from the outraged, Rookie Moms then tried to clear the air by explaining why they sent the tweet in the first place.
While a few brave voices applauded them for trying to include costumes for a “variety of skin colors”, Rookie Moms felt it was in their best interest to apologize without acknowledging the larger issue of WHY people were so offended by the tweet to begin with.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on Rookie Moms culturally insensitive tweets today in the comment section below.
