We Feel You, Appeton, But You Can't Say That Out Loud
Looks like someone had a bad day, then proceeded to make an advertisement for children's brain vitamins. Last Monday, March 19, the Facebook page Appeton Hi-Q Philippines posted an image to promote the dietary supplement in a manner that's a little...blunt. See for yourself:
They don't mince words, so neither did the commenters:
Now, it seems to be a legitimate advertising material, posted on what, by most standards, seems to be a legitimate page. The page contains photo albums of Appeton's events, it responds informatively to comments, it has over 130,000 followers as of this writing, and it even links to the official Tokagawa Global Corp website. It doesn't, however, have the verified check icon, and hasn't responded on the matter, so right now, we're taking its legitimacy with a grain of salt.
Regardless, the fact that the page's legitimacy is plausible—and that it's used that language (not to mention that dubious IQ ranking) in a plausibly legitimate ad material—should call attention to whoever is really in charge of Appeton. The post is getting thousands of likes, and is becoming potentially harmful to the brand.
But in any case, we totally understand whoever made that ad material. The poor sap must have been scrolling through some cancerous corners of Facebook, or maybe dealing lining up at a government office before making that ad. Let's just hope they feel better now that they've gotten that off their chest.
