KFC Thailand Says Sorry For Posting Insensitive Ad

KFC Thailand finally apologizes for posting an insensitive tsunami ad in their Facebook Page.

KFC Thailand finally says sorry for posting an insensitive message in their official Facebook, urging people to head to their fastfood chain, amidst the tsunami warnings, caused by a recent earthquake in Indonesia . The message said: “Let’s hurry home and follow the earthquake news. And don’t forget to order your favorite KFC menu.”

As we all remember, like Indonesia, Thailand was also struck by the tsunami a few years ago, leaving thousands of 8,000 people dead.

It was really callous of KFC Thailand to post such remarks, even for advertising purposes.

Lazaridis Fires Back to Blackberry-banning Countries

Written on August 05, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

Research in Motion Ltd. co-CEO Mike Lazaridis did not mince words in his response to the recent issue of Blackberry boycotts in some Asian countries. Saudi Arabia threatened to ban RIM's device on Friday. Its government was demanding for greater access to the device's encrypted messages.

In an intense interview of Lazaridis by the Wall Street Journal, the Blackberry maker insisted on RIM’s stand to restrict government access to the encrypted information being sent by their device. He reportedly fired back to the threat-imposing countries, saying: “This is about the Internet. Everything on the Internet is encrypted. This is not a BlackBerry-only issue. If they can’t deal with the Internet, they should shut it off.”

Countries like the UAE, India and this one just in, Indonesia have put on the pressure to the tightly-secured Blackberry by individually delving into the security issue. The co-chief was attempting for negotiation, to say the least. But with the words he lashed out in the interview, it looks to us that the possibilities are slowly diminishing.

“We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet. A lot of these people don’t have Ph.Ds, and they don’t have a degree in computer science.”

Lazaridis’ concern must not be overlooked though: letting down encrypted data would risk the international and favorable reputation of Blackberry of tight security, which can affect corporate choices on the “smartphone” that is Blackberry.
