Earlier this afternoon, American Express’ Twitter account issued a Tweet in support of Planned Parenthood. It seemed like an odd move, PR-wise, for a company catering to a wide range of people – people who might not necessarily agree with AmEx’s supposed stance on controversial political issues.
Here is the original Tweet, which has since been deleted:
When in doubt, mention Scarlett Johansson, we guess.
We reached out to American Express’ online / social media relations team, who told us that no one at American Express sent out the Tweet in question. The official Twitter echos this:
Did some rogue Planned Parenthood supporter hack into the company Twitter account to do a little evangelizing? We’ll let you know as soon as we find any additional insight into what happened.
