Gap quickly responded to Iftikhar to get more information. The company’s Twitter header was also changed to show the ad that had been defaced.
The defaced ad was replaced with a fresh one, prompting Iftikhar to praise the company and “the power of social media.” (It’s also likely a good sign Gap was prepared for this very contingency.)
