Not. Appropriate.

We’re not sure why this tweet was re-discovered today, or why most Twitter users don’t seem to understand that the tweet appeared more than two years ago.

In response to the outrage, Carl’s Jr. profusely apologized posted a smiley-faced response noting that the tweet in question was published in November 2010:

Carl’s Jr. also stated that the tweet was not the result of a hacking:

Regardless of when it was published, the tweet is still inappropriate and today’s flippant response didn’t help matters.

Just out of curiosity, did Carl’s Jr. ever apologize. If not, why not?

Miley Cyrus apparently didn’t hold the tweet in question against Carl’s Jr. On April 8, 2012, more than a year after the creepy Carl’s Jr. tweet appeared, she tweeted the following photo of herself sniffing a Carl’s Jr. bag with the caption: “I can’t eat it.  So I’m just gonna smell the shi******** out of it!  My mouth is LITERALLY watering.”

    Hardees/CarlsJr… purveyors of food porn for years – maybe they’re expanding to other kinds of porn? :)

    Creepy? Yeah.

    OTOH Miley Cyrus hasn’t exactly been acting as a prim & pure debutante lately has she?

    Now yes she’s an adult, and she can do whatever she wants… including what she’s doing.

    But if you wanted me to be outrageously outraged you might have tried this when they tweeted it TWO YEARS AGO… I can’t recall if she was tramping it around quite as badly then as now.

    I find myself wondering why you decided this was worth posting.

      GMTA, she’s been acting skanky way before she was legal, and the libidiots with their faux outrage had no problems with it… Good for Carl’s Jr, not backing down to the speech police

    The ick factor is definitely at play here – not only at the pseudo-porn CJ’s frequently employs, but also the fact their hamburgers taste like rotten ass….

  • almarquardt

    I read that a bit differently; that she is of legal age to either vote, drink or buy a house (I have no idea how old she is). Why do people automatically assume a sexual context? I’m thinking this is less of a problem with Carl’s than with those who read the tweet the way they did.

    Poor Carl Karcher, he was such a good man. The d-bags who took over Carl’s Jr. purposefully went out of their way to offend him with their ad campaigns when he lost control of the business he created from a hot-dog stand. Even after his death, they seem creepily driven to continue to debase what is his legacy. They’re a bunch of pukes.

  • AmandaJeff Day

    Miley has that condition that makes famous people lose their sanity…….money.

    This tweet isn’t that shocking, if you’ve seen the BBQ Bacon Burger ad. I REALLY thought those 2 chicks were gonna make out.

      Considering one of them is a POTY, I wouldn’t have been surprised. #whataburger
