Twitter meltdown: Marc Jacobs account goes rogue

In a bizarre series of tweets, the intern handling the fashion house’s Twitter feed ranted about his employer, labeling the CEO a ‘tyrant.’

Just ask the fashion house Marc Jacobs.

It joined the Twitter gaffe act over the weekend, mere months after Kenneth Cole embarrassed itself with an insensitive tweet about the Egyptian revolution.

An unnamed intern, assigned to handle the Marc Jacobs Twitter account while the company looks for an official tweeter, live-tweeted his or her own meltdown. Around midnight Friday, the intern sent a series of bizarre tweets from the Marc Jacobs account, reports the Daily Mail:

“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.”

“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!”

“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!”
