Hard to believe that something this ridiculous actually slips by a company as big as Coca-Cola with a marketing budget bigger than the GNI of some Countries.
[Original story via: Candice Ward, Metro News] Coca-Cola apologized Wednesday to the family of an Alberta woman who was shocked to unscrew a bottle of the company’s Vitaminwater and find the words ‘YOU RETARD’ printed inside the cap.
Edmonton-based photographer Blake Loates said she and her husband discovered the cap while out for dinner on Tuesday night. “We were both pretty shocked,” she said.
What makes the situation even more upsetting to Loates is that her younger sister Fiona is living with cerebral palsy and autism and was taught that the “R-word” is completely unacceptable.
