@KitchenAidUSA tweeted during the Presidential Debate when Obama mentioned his grandmother, Madelyn Lee Payne Dunham, who died November 2, 2008: “Obamas gma even knew it was going 2 b bad! ‘She died 3 days b4 he became president’. #nbcpolitics” The same @KitchenAidUSA Twitter account quickly replied with profuse apologies. Apparently, an employee doing social media for Kitchen Aid used the wrong Twitter account to tweet his personal opinion of President Obama.

KitchenAid released a statement: During the debate tonight, a member of our Twitter team mistakenly posted an offensive tweet from the KitchenAid handle instead of a personal handle. The tasteless joke in no way represents our values at KitchenAid, and that person won’t be tweeting for us anymore. That said, I lead the KitchenAid brand, and I take responsibility for the whole team. I am deeply sorry to President Obama, his family, and the Twitter community for this careless error.

MASHABLE.COM reports:An insensitive tweet poking fun at President Barack Obama's late grandmother -- posted on KitchenAid's official U.S. account -- caught the eye of many Twitter users Wednesday night during the presidential debate.

    That Tweet is just insensitive and wrong. And it would have been no matter where it was posted. I am not an Obama fan. But disrespect for the dead is just evil.

    That kind of mess-up is why so many business's dont like their employees working and doing personal things on the computer at the same time.

    Maybe, if I had one. We're allowed to blog but no Facebook et al. We dead folks seem to be fair game for anyone and anything. Used to be that one respected their ancestors.
