Bank Of America Credit Card Offer Calls Woman A ‘Slut’


Bank of America Credit Card Offer Slut

Bank of America was forced to apologize to a Bay Area freelance writer after a credit card offer from the bank called her a slut. The offer, received at her mom’s house, was addressed to “Lisa Is A Slut McIntire.”

Lisa tweeted out a photo of the offer on Thursday.

Then, she turned to Bank of America’s help Twitter handle, to try and sort out the mess.

It took a bit to get a response, but while she waited, the story went viral, appearing on Gawker, the local news stations, and New York Magazine, among others. Finally, BofA responded.

The credit card offer was sent to McIntire by Golden Key International Honour Society, which partners with businesses like Bank of America to send out offers. The society also responded to Lisa’s tweet, writing:

Then, the call finally came from the bank.

McIntire then explained to followers that she received a call from Golden Key’s VP of Communications, who was able to find out that the “offensive language” was added to her account between 2004 and 2008. As she put it:

Bank of America also apologized for the language, explaining that they flag “more traditional curse words,” but not “slut.” Showing that she has a sense of humor about the situation, Lisa added:

While the companies are working to fix the mistake, they will probably also add the word “slut” to the list of flagged words.
