EPA Apologizes For Kim Kardashian Tweet

Kim Kardashian is an easy target. She’s frequently mocked by comedians, angry internet trolls, gossip magazines, and now, apparently, the EPA.

The EPA water office sent out a bizarre tweet earlier this week mocking Kim Kardashian and her new iPhone app.

The message read: “I’m now a C-list celebrity in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Come join me and become famous too by playing on iPhone!”

Why? Why would a government agency bother commenting on Kim Kardashian’s fame? This was probably a mistake by some intern. Regardless, the EPA apologized for mocking Kardashian on Twitter.

Liz Purchia, a spokeswoman for the EPA, also sent a statement to USA Today.

Purchia said: “An EPA fellow inadvertently triggered an auto-generated tweet. She regrets the error and has been advised on the sensitivities of using social media.” An auto generated tweet? Does that mean that someone at the EPA is spending their day playing Kim Kardashian; Hollywood? Do they have the official EPA account linked to the mobile app?

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood was the top downloaded app on Tuesday. Some reports estimate that the game will make Kim about $80 million by the end of the year.
