Kenneth Cole: ‘Why donate to Obama when you can buy shoes?’ Libs freak out

http://twitter.com/#!/KennethCole/status/254778195381985280

Heh. Last night, Kenneth Cole tweeted, “People gave $181 MIL to #obama in Sept. The same amt could buy 1,167,742 pairs of KC shoes ($155 each). What is wrong with our values?” The sane realized that tweet was a bit of snark in a marketing attempt. But, to the Left, it is cause for unhinged outrage. How dare he joke about The One? Plus, greedy shoe-seller! Trying to sell your products? Why, that’s unheard of!

.@KennethCole what a totally dick tweet. I would cancel my current KC boot order but your company already did bcos they can't fill orders

.@KennethCole i think you seriously need to clarify that tweet

— ScottHenriksenFinley (@ScottyBurberry) October 7, 2012

Seriously! He’s going to cry!

Still annoyed at this MT @KennethCole Ppl gave $181M 2Obama in Sep.Same$ cud by1,167,742 prs of KCshoes ($155 ea).What's wrong w/our values?

He’s fretting. Over a joke tweet. He was probably unable to sleep, so he had to pull on his skinny jeans and take a walk down the block to get a soy chai. Other Obama cult members join in the freak-out.

@KennethCole meaning donating to #obama is wrong, we should give your shoes to the needy, or your shoes are overpriced?

— Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole You just lost another customer. Great work!

— Allan Brauer (@allanbrauer) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole Is this a joke? Had to ask cause not even a little funny. Valuing material goods is the ruin of this country.

Hey NZ, Aussie & UK- @KennethCole is a fucking douchebag! If u bought anything from him in the past, Id discontinue! PBO has better VALUES!

— KiwiRenegade (@KiwiRenegade) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole My values dictate that I don't support hatred with my dollars.

— LiberalPhenom (@LiberalPhenom) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole You put your foot in your mouth showing your bigotry denegrating values of POTUS supporters. You've just lost a customer.

— LiberalPhenom (@LiberalPhenom) October 7, 2012

Hatred and bigotry. Trying to sell shoes is now … racist! Time to update the Handbook of Racial Code Words again. New entry: shoe sales.

@KennethCole was that a joke? Bad one, but you can't be that stupid, can you? Oh wait Kitchenaid was stupid too!

— Marisol Martinez (@SeaSunMarisol) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole what? I know my donation represents my values while I guess yours are selling $155 shoes — grow up and stop playing politics

— Susan (@sailmom) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole yes. Our values suck. People spend obscene money on trivial crap like your shoes.

— Jillosopher (@jillosopher) October 7, 2012

Probably even some icky banksters!

.@KennethCole No one I know will ever buy your products again.

— La-La-La Laura (@ColeGirlOne) October 7, 2012

*cries* RT @PamMcAllister: Let's give @kennethcole one chance to take it back and apologize. ONE chance. Clock is ticking, Kenneth.

— AMJ not Amanda… (@AmandaMichelle) October 7, 2012

Ooooh, cue the ominous music. One chance, Kenneth. Until High Noon. Then just wait and see what happens!

@PamMcAllister @kennethcole This is the kind of thing I never forget. I say boycott Kenneth Cole products-It's prob all made in china anyway

— Nikki (@jrpaws) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole You're disgusting. Boycott Kenneth Cole products.

— Nikki (@jrpaws) October 7, 2012

The cuckoo pants continues.

.@KennethCole Well, aren't you a great marketer. Now fuck off.

— Born a Democrat (@aPolishgirl) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole Thanks for letting me know not to support your company anymore! Will never buy anything from you again! #Obama2012

— Ms.T (@totallygreen03) October 7, 2012

Wow RT @PamMcAllister: No more of your shoes for me. MT @KennethCole People gave $181 MIL to #obama in Sept…What is wrong with our values?

— Karoli (@Karoli) October 7, 2012

@PamMcAllister @Karoli I just read it –disgusting. @KennethCole is about to join @KitchenAidUSA in the 'most assinine tweet category'

— HOPE from nyc (@nycHope) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole Dear Mr. Cole/are you really this fucking stupid?

— dejavucook (@dejavucook) October 7, 2012

Ye gods @caradox Had no idea @KennethCole was such an asshat. Note to self: Never shop at KC again.

— Libby Spencer (@libbyspencer) October 7, 2012

Is @KennethCole serious? If he is, I'm getting rid of every article of clothing I have that bears his brand. That's unabashed greed.

— Mr. Incredible (@samueljcookiii) October 7, 2012

@mmnimmz @KennethCole That's sickening.

— Mr. Incredible (@samueljcookiii) October 7, 2012

@KennethCole I sure as hell will never buy anything ever again associated with your name you idiot.

— TRICIA (@tricia2051) October 7, 2012

.@KennethCole Ever occur to ya that your target demo also fervently supports the guy protecting their rights? Marketing #fail

— Cara Lynch (@caradox) October 7, 2012

@kennethcole values? You question values when you're referring to freaking SHOES? Replaceable g-damn overpriced shoes?

To the unhinged, nothing is ever funny. Everything is an outrage!!!11111

@mamasnark are there ppl who think it’s real?

— Mel, MSW (@melhartsell) October 7, 2012

Bitterly clinging to their lack of humor!

Kenneth Cole even retweeted that one.

Will that stop the freak-out?

How long until some marketing manager at @KennethCole tweets an apology for the absurd tweet sent by some schmucky intern?

— HOPE from nyc (@nycHope) October 7, 2012

Sigh. Will the humorless tolerance police bully him into apologizing? Stay tuned.

UPDATE: And the simpering (he hearts Obama!!!) clarification begins. Kenneth Cole was totally being ironic and stuff. Because, campaign finance reform.

Just an ironic (and not clear) reflection for the need for campaign finance reform from a long time obama supporter.
