Someone who works in social media at The UPS store is probably going to get fired for having a heart full of coal and dead dreams. In a tweet that earned over 15,000 likes and 4,300 re-tweets in less than 24 hours and has since been deleted, The UPS store gave the internet a dark and graphic image of what happens to all the letters hopeful children send to Santa: pic.twitter.com/RUhiH9n8jD— Priz (@Priz) December 17, 2018 Granted, every Christmas-celebrating child has to learn the truth about Santa one day and the over-the-top, elaborate measures some parents take to protect the fantasy do seem a little unnecessary. The UPS store, though? In arguably the most famous movie about the legend of Santa Claus, "Miracle on 34th St." the United States Postal Service is the reason the lawyer is able to prove that the Macy's Santa is the real Santa. If we can't get the United Parcel Service on Santa's side, maybe we should tell our kids to start emailing Santa? It'd be better for the environment...Staci Reidinger, the public relations and social media manager for the UPS store told Buzzfeed, "We do a lot of puns that have second-or third-level meanings in our posts. We thought this was going to be one of those. We’re very sensitive to what we do on social, and if we see things that are going in the wrong direction, we want to say, 'OK, we’re going to back off of this.' We did not want to take away from the magic of Christmas. [The tweet] was just to get people laughing." As far as the employee who tweeted the Santa-shaming, Reidinger says he or she has been made aware of the backlash, but no disciplinary action has been taken. For the record, I don't think this person should be fired, I think they just need some Christmas cheer.Still, a lot of people were scandalized by the UPS store's Grinch-like attitude. But maybe this is just a nice reminder to keep your children off of Twitter? After all, you wouldn't want them to see our president like that...1.Can you also flip off my child and tell him there is no Santa for an additional cost?— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) December 17, 2018 2.this is too dark for meand too dark for me is pretty goddamned dark— NotGoingQuietlyHat (@Popehat) December 17, 2018 3.https://twitter.com/AliseNavidad/status/10747469817031434254.
