PR disasters from Pepsi, United Airlines and US Secretary of State Sean Spicer, have dominated the news in the last week, and Twitterati, in true Twitterati fashion, have pulled no punches in response.
Pepsi’s controversial Kendall Jenner ad, United Airlines’ assault of a passenger and Sean Spicer’s comments on Hitler and the Holocaust have created a veritable firestorm of hatred, which Twitter has responded to in the only way they know how –through memes.
Twitter user @ChrisMelberger tweeted out an image encapsulating the three PR debacles in one meme.

Twitter took note and characteristically added fuel to the fire.

Sean Spicer is just trying to distract us from United Airlines which was a distraction from Pepsi which was a distraction from Russia.— Michael Blackman (@MBlackman37) April 11, 2017
