Yesterday, the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have A Dream" speech was marked with very touching tributes all across America. President Obama honored Dr. King's memory with a speech of his own at the Lincoln Memorial. Google had a really cool tribute logo (see it here). And tens of thousands of people filled the National Mall in Washington to mark the historical event.
On twitter #DreamDay and #IHaveADream were trending topics. Unfortunately, the Golf Channel was the victim of a good idea gone wrong when they asked their 200,000 plus twitter followers to "Tweet your 'golf' dream," using the hashtag "#DreamDay." Shortly after one follower replied, "I have a dream that no man, regardless of creed, will ever bogey," the tweet was deleted.
The Golf Channel also went on to release this statement: "The tweet in question was not appropriate and was pulled minutes after being posted this morning. The original intent was to celebrate this important date in history, and we regret that we failed to meet that standard."
Yup, that was a MASSIVE FAIL!
