Last month Marc Jacobs announced that it was looking for someone to take over its then Robert Duffy-helmed Twitter account. The company is still looking for someone to fill the position, and has had an intern tweeting for the time being. That is, until now. Because said intern had a full-on meltdown on the @MarcJacobsIntl account.
The tweets no longer exist, but the Daily Mail has a play-by-play of the action:
You guys and gals have no idea how difficult Robert is. I am only an intern. My last day is tomorrow. I wouldn’t be tweeting this if not!
I was asked to do this until we found a replacement… I hate this job. Hope they find someone soon. Robert is so picky! We have presented him with 50 people. He’s not happy.
Good luck! I pray for you all. If you get the job! I’m out of here. See ya! Son’t want to be ya! Roberts a tyrant! Seriously! He is tough!
I can call him out! I’m out! Won’t work in this town again! I know that! Learned a lot. But, I don’t have the energy for what is expected!
Yea, walk in my MJ shoes! Don’t judge me! I’m alone in this office having to try and entertain you all. This isn’t easy. I have tried. Done!
Yikes. Awkward, unprofessional and embarrassing. As a means of damage control, the brand tweeted a pair of responses seen above and below: “All is well here at MJ. Twitter is a crazy place. Protect your passwords.” and “Things are crazy in the twittersphere. Never let your phone too far out of sight.” While these statements place the blame on a hacker (or phone stealer?) of sorts instead of an internal source, we’re not totally convinced — the offending tweets certainly read like those of a disgruntled employee.
