Top Twelve Tesco Horse Meat Jokes – About the “Burgergate” Affair
Rather than react with outrage, the British people did what they do best in response to yesterdays Tesco/Lidl/Asda/Iceland “Horse Meat Found in Beef Burger’ debacle – they took the Mickey.
Social Media was awash with jokes yesterday, ad nauseum.
Today Tesco, who took the brunt of the hit, paid for full page ads in all UK daily newspapers apologising for what happened.
While there are other elements to the reputation damage being suffered here, I think Tesco would have done better to embrace this kind of outpouring rather than ignoring it.
Showing you can take a joke is better than apologising for being the butt of it.
