ICYMI: Steve Martin’s Racist Tweet

You’d think Steve Martin would have learned a lesson from PR exec Justine Sacco’s Twitter debacle last week, but, alas, it appears he has not.

The 68-year-old actor posted the following tweet on Friday, in response to one of his follower’s questions: “Is this how you spell lasonia?”

“It depends. Are you in an African-American neighborhood or at an Italian restaurant?”

Martin quickly deleted the tweet, but not before a Twitter user took a screenshot of the offensive tweet. He apologized for the mishap, but we can’t help but wonder…when will people learn?

Think before you tweet. That is all.
