NYPD’s Twitter Callout Fails Miserably
The NYPD official Twitter account had asked its 97,000 followers to send a photo of themselves posing with one of its officers using the hashtag #myNYPD.
While there were a few perfectly fine snaps of tourists posing next to New York’s finest and officers helping out the locals, the majority of the tweets in the hashtag feature images of police brutality. Photos including officers pulling a woman’s hair and beating up a homeless man were just some of the pictures that people shared via the #myNYPD hashtag.
Since the NYPD’s PR strategy seem to be pretending that everyone loves the NYPD, maybe they just didn’t notice everyone else mocking them.
