The Thug-town Tribune article titled “Bank of America mailer refers to recipient as ‘slut’“, which disucsses some San Fran writer getting a credit card offer with the name ‘Lisa Is a Slut McIntire’, prompted BOA to issue an apology. I am left wondering if that apology is needed if Lisa really is a slut, though. From the article:
“Lisa Is a Slut McIntire, you’ve earned this special offer,” the mailer said in bold letters, in a Visa credit card offer that the letter said was tied to McIntire’s membership in the Golden Key International Honour Society. A spokeswoman for Bank of America told The Times that she would look into the situation.
Earlier, the bank tweeted at McIntire: “We’re incredibly sorry this happened and are researching now so we can take the appropriate action. We’ll follow up with you ASAP.”
McIntire, a former deputy communications director for one of California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s campaigns, laughed a little in describing the mailer, which was sent to her mother’s home in Menlo Park. But she said she was “dying to know” how the phrasing got in the mail.
Maybe it is because of Newsom. Who knows? We are dealing with people from Freak town USA here. I don’t know, but in the scheme of all the other real ugly shit going on, this story just doesn’t make me feel anything but sad.
