@JoeMande you're obviously smarter than I am, but what is so terrible about those companies saying something about today's significance?

Apparently, there’s nothing funnier than corporate Twitter accounts sending out 9/11 tributes and remembrances. Alleged comedian Joe Mande seems to believe that corporations, composed of humans, are incapable of humanity. He spent the morning retweeting 9/11 memorial messages from well-known companies:

A moving 9/11 memorial photo? How hilarious!

His fans thought it was a witty, biting commentary on the evil and selfishness of corporate America:

— darrylayo (@darrylayo) September 11, 2012

.@joemande's twitter feed today should be taught in PR classes on what NOT to do with corporate social media. But, it is hilarious.

@joemande is doing big things on his Twitter feed today… Anyone not acknowledging his work has officially forgotten 9/11.

— Greg F (@Books_Not_Wooks) September 11, 2012

Ok, @joemande's RTs of megacorps' ridiculous 9/11 remembrances is the best thing ever. WHITE CASTLE WILL NEVER FORGET! https://t.co/8CbVof1T

No, actually. He doesn’t get it. But this woman does:

Interesting as it is, my heart goes out to the people behind the non-people corporations being skewered by @JoeMande's 9/11 RT-fest. 🙁

— Lori White (@lolololori) September 11, 2012

Indeed. Mande’s mockery of heartfelt tributes to the heroes and fallen of 9/11 is nothing short of shameful. On a day of national mourning, it’s Mande and his pathetic fans — not corporate America — who are trivializing the tremendous loss we felt 11 years ago. We hope they’re proud of themselves.
