We have no idea who’s in charge of the Kenneth Cole Twitter feed, but they clearly haven’t learned that the prospect of armed conflict isn’t a good tool for selling clothing.

Ugh.

Here’s the thing that really gets us: It’s been, as of this post, about three hours (and many outraged responses) since the tweet went live. No deletion, no apology, no follow-up explanation. And, given the flack the Kenneth Cole received for this equally tone-deaf 2011 tweet about Egypt, we have to wonder if its social media managers are toying with us here. Seriously. Tell us we’re wrong.
