Auntie Beeb is due a slap on the wrist due to a bad joke put up on the BBC’s newly built Olympics microsite.
The Media Blog spotted that when the web page first went up, placeholder text was inserted underneath the Follow us on Facebook section.
The text read: “You can also become a saddo on Facebook”, which unsurprisingly has offended many of the license paying Beeb viewers who are on the social networking site.
Twitter wasn’t singled out for such a scathing comment, with just a simple placeholder line saying “Follow the latest updates etc” inserted under its heading.
Perhaps the web designer in question is a secret tweeter. At any rate, he’ll probably be making some high pitched noises when the Beeb bosses get hold of him after this particular faux-pas…
